I started teaching in 2005 and have worked in 2 small districts in Idaho before coming to Fruitland. I am looking forward to working in Fruitland. I have two children and have been married since 2005. 2nd grade is wonderful and I love teaching this age.

I started here at Fruitland Elementary in 2008. I really do love this age! I have 3 grown children and 1 amazing grandbaby. I enjoy singing, dancing, and spending time with my family. I like having fun and I am always looking for ways to teach with excitement!

I started teaching here at Fruitland in 2019. Second Graders are truly amazing and so much fun! I am married and have three children. I enjoy being outdoors and love to spend time with my family. I also grew up here in Fruitland and went to FES, so I feel right at home here. The students, parents, and staff are all amazing to work with! I feel fortunate to be doing what I love everyday.

I have been teaching second grade at Fruitland Elementary School since 2007. I absolutely love this grade and being a part of my students’ journey! I have been married over 25 years and we have 4 Fruitland graduates! Other than being with my little second grade family, I love camping, shopping, and spending time with family (especially my little grands), and friends!

I have been teaching second grade at Fruitland longer than many of you are old! 🙂 I am now teaching children of my (students) children! I truly love this age. I feel that I have the best job in the world. It is so much fun watching the children grow and they definitely keep me on my toes!
