Fifth Grade

I love being a teacher and teaching fifth grade is my absolute favorite! I love that fifth grade gives us the opportunity to learn so much about our country and its history, and about how to expand on everything we learned in fourth grade! I especially love teaching math and history in fifth because I love seeing my students make connections to what they learn and show creativity with the way they solve problems. Learning is something I love to do, and I love watching that love grow in my students each year as well! I love incorporating creative ways to show what we learn and want to make coming to school something my students are excited to do every single day! I want my students to recognize the role they have within the classroom, and continually give them opportunities to lead and share their ideas. The classroom becomes our classroom as I work with my students to learn all kinds of new things and build each other up through respect, service and fun!

When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family and friends, being outside, watching soccer games and traveling (especially to Disneyland)! I also love trying new restaurants and new recipes, and would craft all day long if I could!

I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a minor in teaching English to speakers of other languages. During my teaching time, I also worked to earn a teaching endorsement in gifted education. As a teacher, I have had the opportunity to teach both regular education third and fourth grade classes, and gifted education fourth and fifth grade classes. I’ve loved every single year!

Lincoln is my new home and I am so excited to be a part of it!
