Hi! This year is my 19th year of teaching.  I have been teaching in Richfield for 14 years at the same school, first RIS and now R-STEM.  I taught for 5 years prior to that in Las Vegas, Nevada.  I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade prior to teaching Kindergarten.  I grew up in Richfield and it was fun to come back and teach in the city I grew up in.  

I have three children.  Ryan is a sophomore and enjoys playing baseball.  Hollee is a 6th grader and enjoys running cross-country and track and playing hockey.  Nate is in 4th grade and plays football, baseball, and hockey.  Needless to say, our kids keep me and my husband Scott going from the time we wake up until we go to bed.  When I have any free time, I enjoy going for walks with our dog, Harvey, reading, and watching HGTV. 
I am looking forward to another fantastic year here at STEM!
