I was privileged to get my Bachelors of Science in Social Studies Education with a composite in History at BYU-Idaho. This degree allows me to teach several things including Government, History, Geography, Economics, Sociology, and Psychology. I currently teach World Hist. Early U.S., Modern U.S. Hist., and National Honor Society


This is my third year at West Jefferson High School. I have learned and grown greatly since my first year because of the great mentoring and patience of my peers. Teaching has been a passion and a part of my life since I was young. I taught history at Madison to 5th, 6th, and 8th graders before I came to West Jefferson. I hope to continue to learn and grow here at this school. 


            I was born in Bountiful Utah but soon moved to Shelley Idaho. When we first moved to this strange land and bought five acres of property I asked my father “are we farmers now?” He laughed and said we were not. While we were not farmers my father did instill a strong work ethic that has helped carry me through my life. This came in handy when my father and I built a log home that he and my mother now call their home. Shelley was a great town and has always had a special place in my heart. I loved this small little town because the people in it always seemed willing to help and serve each other whenever someone was in need. I was excited to get a job in West Jefferson because it reminds me of the same feeling I hold for Shelley. After finishing high school I went on a mission to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I returned I enrolled at BYU-I and soon realized my passion for teaching. I received a Bachelors of Science in Social Studies with a History composite. I then was introduced to Special Education and have loved every min. of it. I have really enjoyed my work out here in West Jefferson and hope to be here a long time. While Special Education has been awesome I now teach history, which is my true love. I hope that I can make history come alive for the students at West Jefferson.
