Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my page and Culbertson. I have been a teacher, advisor, and coach throughout the 21 years here. I am a graduate of Corvallis High School, home of the Blue Devils in Montana. I met my husband Mike in 1995 while attending college. We married and graduated from the University of Idaho in 2001. In the spring of 2002, we had our first child, Colby, and the three of us made the move to Culbertson, Montana for teaching jobs. I began my teaching career in Health and Physical Education. My husband and I welcomed our second child, Kayli, in 2004. 21 years crept on us and we are now proud parents of a sophomore at Minot State University and a senior at Culbertson High School. I began working on my Library Media Certification and now work as the K-12 Library Media Specialist. The best part of my day is the morning and lunch hours, where I can sit with students and hear about their day, weekend, problems, triumphs, and excitement for things to come. They make my job easy and keep my mind young. I can't imagine any other life!
In our spare time we love to camp; this was an acquired taste on my part. I love crocheting, crafting, Christmas, and winter. I enjoy my two puppies and any chance I can get my family under one roof is considered the best day of my life. Although I do not enjoy hot weather, I do love being outdoors, anything in the water, and attempting the title of gardener. I enjoy coffee with my creamer, coolwhip on my hot chocolate, doing absolutely nothing, and baking.
