Current happenings:

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 around this summer and hope that you have a wonderful time being with your family and friends while making awesome memories together.

 I am looking forward to spending time with my family, enjoying some get away weekends and doing things around the house like gardening, reading, and planning for the next school year, and taking naps in my hammock!

 I am thinking of you all and wish you and your family the very best.

Classroom Philosophy:
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.

About Me:
I have finished my eleventh 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.

There is nothing better then to be in a classroom full of wonderful kids!
