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!

  Over the years, I have earned an Associate’s degree in English Literature and a Bachelor of Science in Education.  

     I come from a military family so I claim a little bit of everywhere in America, but most recently I lived and taught in Las Vegas. Growing up on the move, I gained a deep love of books because I could take them with me to my new environment. Now as a teacher, I strive to fill my classroom with every genre of literature, so that I may offer my students a chance to learn and explore different ideas, places, and people throughout history.

        A few of my hobbies include playing the cello (which I love to bring into the classroom), singing opera, experimenting with scientific concepts, reading (I usually have a book in my purse at all times), and walking with my two puppies around the neighborhood. I also love to travel and experience more of the world. My favorite city to visit is Prague because the architecture makes me feel like I’ve traveled back in time.
