In my first year here at SkyView you can find me in all corners of the school. I am a part time paraprofessional for third grade and substitute teacher all other days. Most days you can find me in elementary, I stop in at middle school every once in a while. For two months starting at the end of February I am Mrs. Wiley’s long term sub in first grade! I love the face of joy students get when they see me randomly in the hall, and I strive for the moments when a light bulb goes off in a students mind when they really grasp the understanding of something.

When I’m not at SkyView you can find me coaching club volleyball and other sports, hanging out with family or spending time with my cat.

I love teaching these little people, because I am getting in on the ground floor so to speak. I have the opportunity to teach them things that will stay with them for life, not just academics, but also social and emotional. This is going to be an exciting journey. I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, rafting, snowmobiling etc. I have never been a skier, but some day I will. I also enjoy cooking.
