What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
Interacting with the amazing kids and staff - they fill my bucket every day! I also really enjoy seeing our students make connections and apply what they are learning to their every day lives.
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
Oh, sooooo many favorites, here are a few: The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye, Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale, Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo, Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, The Princess Academy by Shannon Hale, The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton, Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco, and Ish by Peter Reynolds.
I was born in Renton, Washington, grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Brigham City, Utah, and have raised my family in Layton, Utah and Fort Collins, Colorado.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, reading, gardening, biking, and a few crafty things.
A little more about me: 
I've been married to my husband since 1986, we have three amazing kids and one granddaughter. I have seven siblings, fabulous brother and sister in-laws, and an extended family that I am forever grateful for. I love to travel to new places and go on new adventures.
