Welcome to Middle School English Language Arts!

I imagine students may be feeling a little anxious or fearful about the year ahead and all of the unknowns related to Covid-19. Please know I am committed to your success as a student - whether it is online, in-person, or a hybrid model - I will work hard along side you and cheer you on all the way! Will it be challenging? Yes. Will it be frustrating at times? Sure. But with a positive attitude, some creative thinking, a few deep breaths and truckload of humor, we will be successful! We've got this!

A Little About Me...

2020-2021 will be my second year teaching at Falcon Ridge and my fifth year teaching overall. After graduating from Boise State University with a BA in secondary English education, I taught in the Boise School District for three years before finding my new nest at Falcon Ridge.Though my family moved to Idaho when I was five, I consider myself an Idaho native and grew up enjoying the mountains, rivers, and lakes of North Idaho. I have lived in the Boise area since 2003 and enjoy all the outdoor (and indoor) entertainment available to us in this beautiful part of the state. I enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking, traveling, photography, art projects of all kinds, and of course, reading and writing. My favorite summer read was Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall. I also started a journal this summer to capture my family's outdoor adventures and to record the day-to-day of pandemic life. We are primary sources for the story that will be told one day about this unique and historic time! I currently live in Boise with my husband, Jason, and my crazy cat, Max (aka Maxamillion, Gluteus Maximus, and Mad Max).
