Before coming to Hibbard Elementary School, I worked as a kindergarten paraprofessional for 16 years at Lincoln Elementary School. I enjoyed what I did so much that I took classes at BYU-Idaho to earn a bachelor's degree in elementary education. After completing my degree, I was offered a teaching position here at Hibbard Elementary School. I have been teaching kindergarten for 6 years now. Being a kindergarten teacher has brought me so much joy. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my 3 children and 10 grandchildren. My hobbies include sewing, embroidering, painting, reading, and traveling with my husband, John Ivers.
