How long have you been teaching & where?

  • I just started my 14th year with EPS and my 13th year at Ida Freeman.

What is your favorite thing about teaching?

  • I love seeing when a child/students finds their “thing”. The one that excites them and makes them want more.

What is the funniest thing you have had to do while teaching?

  • There are a couple. I have had to tell someone that “we leave our pants on at lunch”. Also I have worn a pool float and swim fins during Jam. And I have danced like a hippo in front of the entire school. And of course, being the pizza mascot for Papa Murphy’s nights!

What is the strangest thing you have had to do while teaching?

  • Pulling Santa on a hoverboard.

What is your goal for your students?

  • I want them to remember Ida Freeman as a place that they LOVED! A fun, nurturing place like home and come back to visit.
