             A Little About Me
   I was born in rural Rockwell, went to school and taught at Rockwell-Swaledale, which is now currently West Fork.  I have been very fortunate to live and work in this district my whole life.
   I'm starting my 31st year in teaching.  I have taught Kindergarten for 28 of those years. .  I have been married for 32 years to Tim.  We live on a acreage near Rockwell. We have three grown children: Derek and his wife Sierra, Bria and her husband Scott, and Kara and her husband Zane.  We are also blest with 4 grandchildren: Ryder 5, Kingston 4, and Avayah 3 years and Maddox who was born in May.
   I enjoy horseback riding, reading, spending time with my husband, family and friends, and making a difference in children's lives.  It is so rewarding to see the growth from the beginning of Kindergarten until the end of Kindergarten.
   I want to thank you for trusting me with your child.
