 I teach English II, English IV and College-Prep English. Sophomore and senior years are so important and I am so excited to be a part of your student's time here at Lovell High School.
 
Education-
I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a BA in English Education in 2009. 
 
Experience-
My first teaching job was teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th English at Wind River Middle School in Pavillion, Wyoming. Afterwards I went to Hanna/Elk Mountain High School and taught 9th, 10th, and 11th grade English. I have been teaching in Lovell for 4 years.
 
Bio-
I live in Cowley with my husband Brian and our three kids- Alex (8), Gabe (5), and Tess (2). We love living close to family and the mountains, and we enjoy playing board games and watching Wyoming Cowboy sports.
