Who I Am

I am a 5th grade teacher with Nevada Virtual Academy. This is my second year at NVVA. Prior to teaching virtually, I was a teacher at a rural school in Smith Valley, Nevada. I taught multi-age classes and all grades from 1st-6th in my 6 years there.
I am also a ranch wife and work with my husband to raise beef cattle. We live in northeastern Nevada.
Our son is currently a kindergarten student at NVVA.

This is Me

Q and A

  • What unique quality do you feel you will bring to this class?
I have been lucky to teach in combined classes in a rural school which has strengthened my ability to differentiate instruction.
  • What do you hope will be your biggest accomplishment at the end of this course?
I hope to be better at planning lessons that will benefit English Learners.
  • What will be the biggest challenge?
My location will be my biggest challenge. I am very remote and not able to meet face to face with students who are in my homeroom.
