Hard work pays off. This is the motto I live by and teach to my family, players, and students. I believe in working hard, doing your best, and making the most out of any situation in life. I also try to live by the golden rule.
I grew up in Enterprise, Oregon where I graduated from high school. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and Multidisciplinary Studies from Eastern Oregon University.
I taught for three years in Cambridge, Idaho. Then I accepted a position at Council and have taught here for 16 years. I have been a computer, first grade, second grade, fourth grade, high school business, and Title 1 teacher. I am a member of the FFA Alumni Committee. I have have been a 4-H leader and coached softball, basketball, track, and volleyball. I am currently the high school varsity volleyball coach.
I live on a ranch with my husband and three daughters. I love sports (especially volleyball), riding horses, going to church, playing games, and spending time with my family.
