Summer vacation is now upon us and a time of reflection always happens for me at this time. I feel both sad and proud of these kindergarten students that I have been able to get to know along with their families. They have all touched my heart in a special way so it makes me sad to have to say goodbye. With that said, I am so proud of the friendships that were created, the learning that was accomplished, and the time that we were able to spend together each day.
I look forward to seeing you all around this summer and hope that you have a wonderful time being with your family and friends while making awesome memories together.
I have exciting things happening for my family this summer too! My oldest daughter is getting married here in July, we have a teacher's convention in Chicago in August to attend, and this summer I am not in any classes! I get to enjoy gardening, reading, and planning for the next school year.
I am thinking of you all and wish you and your family the very best.
I seek to provide a safe and caring Christian learning environment that promotes age-appropriate and individualized learning activities. I will strive to encourage children to explore and create, gain information and mastery of new skills, and to learn and practice working and playing with others in a positive way. Most of all, I look forward daily to seeing children happy and involved.
I have finished my tenth year of teaching Kindergarten at Rogers Adventist School and have enjoyed the uniqueness of each year's group of kids. Previously, I was the director and head teacher of the Walla Walla University Child Development Center for nine years.
I have a wonderful husband, Scott, who teaches physical education, health, and coach's the AcroKnight Gymnastics Team at Walla Walla Valley Academy. I have two wonderful daughters who bring so much joy to my life.
I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, playing games, doing craft projects, gardening, camping, and spending time with kids!
There is nothing better then to be with a classroom full of wonderful kids!
