     I’m excited to be teaching First Grade again!  I’m looking forward to another great year at Burton!

     My husband and I have a cute puppy and we enjoy spending all the time we can together.  I enjoy reading, being outside, and cooking.

I love teaching at Burton Elementary! I chose to teach because I love being part of the journey that every child goes through as they learn in school. I always strive to help my students become confident learners and know that education opens so many doors to their future.

I was born in Portugal and raised in the countries of Portugal and Germany until I moved to Idaho. I graduated from BYU-Idaho in Elementary Education. My favorite subjects in school were Social Studies and German. My family and I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and swimming. We also love to travel!

I am grateful for the opportunity to be a teacher and parent in Madison School District. It has been a privilege to teach and interact with so many delightful students over the years, and I look forward to working with your precious children.  It is very rewarding to be a part of the incredible progress that first-graders make in one short year as they develop a love of learning while building a strong foundation in reading and math.  Every day is “A Great Day to be a First-Grader!”

I am an Idaho native and call Rexburg home.  I love the change of seasons and look forward to the beauty each one brings.  My husband and I have two daughters that keep us very busy and fill our lives with boundless joy and excitement.  We love to travel and experience new adventures together.  Our family enjoys being outdoors and keeping a large garden.

I graduated with my elementary education degree in 1999 and started working at a childcare.After three years there, I opened my own childcare business when I had my first child. I have run my childcare business for close to sixteen years now.  I kept my teaching degree current throughout those years.  Now that I have now moved into the classroom, I am enjoying the hussle and bussle of it all.  

I have a love for reading and enjoy reading a good book, I really enjoy children's books because they have such strong character development and enjoyment in them.  

I have four children of my own.  I enjoy watching all of their many sporting events.  We do many outdoor activities.  We like to ride bikes and boat to name a couple of our favorite family activities.
