"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves"  -William Shakespeare


ABOUT ME:   I was born and raised in Page, Arizona.  I attended Brigham Young University where I met my husband and earned my degree in Math Education.  I taught algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus at Page High School for three years, then took a break to raise our one and only daughter.  She also graduated from BYU and is a nurse in Austin, Texas.  I was a substitute teacher in the Prosser School District for 13 years before returning full-time to teaching at Paterson.  I currently teach the amazing 5th grade class for all subjects except science.  I also teach the Algebra 1 class for 14 future calculus students.  I believe in setting the expectations high, making use of every minute in class, and helping each student to reach their individual potential.
