This fall 2021-2022 will be my 23rd year of teaching!  Through the years I’ve taught Pre K through 2nd grade, with the last 7 years being in Kindergarten.  Kindergarten has been my absolute favorite to teach because everything is so fun to watch as the students learn.  SO many lightbulb moments and excitement.  I love helping kids build confidence as learners. 

I live in the country with my husband, Andy, my 2 boys, Jake and Justin, 2 dogs named Mattie and Kyah, a snake named Chadley, and a Pacman frog named Paddy. 

I can't wait to meet you all in the fall!

I grew up in Stayton and have taught kindergarten at Sublimity School for fifteen years. I live in Stayton with my husband, Darren, who is the Vice Principal and Athletic Director at Stayton High School. We have three daughters who are also teachers. Our oldest daughter, Mrs. Kuenzi, teaches third grade at Stayton Elementary School.  I love teaching kindergarten because kindergartners are kind, expressive, and wildly enthusiastic about learning.  Here are a few of my favorite things!
