Grade 3

I was born in Michigan but moved to New Mexico when I was 3 and lived there for 30 years.   I have been married to my husband Justin for almost 16 wonderful years. I am mom to an almost 15-year-old, Jaedyn, and an 11-year-old son, Dalen.  I am starting my 9th year of teaching. My favorites include traveling, spending time in the great outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
