I was raised in Oakes, Pennsylvania. It’s a small town about 10 miles outside of Valley Forge. My husband, daughter and I moved to Idaho 32 years ago. We expanded our family with a boy, and a set of twin girls. My four children are wonderful Christians. My son is one of two youth pastors in my church. I also am very involved in my church, and have participated in a mission trip with them to Mexico. I feel God has gifted me with a passion for helping children. I especially love the 3-5 year olds. They are as excited about learning as I am excited about teaching. My degree is in Early Childhood Education from Ashford University. I taught preschool for eight years at Head Start, here in Ontario, and many years as a teacher’s aide with the New Plymouth School District. My favorite subjects are science, reading and math. I hope to make a positive impact on the children and their families, and welcome parents to come in and join us as we will be doing many exciting activities!
