I am very excited about working as the lead master teacher at Ridgemont Elementary during the 2017-2018 school year. I have devoted my career to helping students learn a second language while improving their academic skills. My goal is that my students become self-motivated, life-long learners who are proud of their billingual abilities. I have been in education for 19 years. I have taught many different grades from Pre-K through 12th grade and I love helping my students increase their language skills. I have been married for nine years and have four children. I also enjoy camping, cake decorating, serving at my church, and serving as a foster parent. I am also a certified EMT-Intermediate.
