I grew up in Eastern Washington and graduated with a BA in Elementary Education from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). After college, I spent 13 years teaching in the Southern California area. In 2011, my family relocated to Idaho, and I began working as an Education Consultant traveling nationally and providing professional development services to teachers. For the past few years, I have been at home raising my two daughters and helping my former principal write and publish his book. I am so excited to be working as an elementary teacher with IDLA!
