Education

When I graduated High School I forced myself to move away from my awesome family and traveled to Twin Falls to attend the College of Southern Idaho... So far away, I know. After I finished my first year there I was sick of being away from my family and missing all the things that went on when I was gone, so I moved back to Roberts and started my online schooling through Western Governors University. I am currently teaching as well as finishing up my last few months of schooling through this program, and loving every minute of it. 



Experience

This is my first year of teaching, and I am loving every second. I am still learning a lot from my fellow First Grade teacher Jill, as well as figuring out a lot of things on my own. I hope to leave this year with a lot of new knowledge and ideas to bring into next year!  



Bio

I was born into a farming family in Roberts where my parents Skip and Megan, myself, and my brothers Wylee, Branson and Straton spent a lot of time together doing many of the farming tasks such as, cutting hay, irrigating, tending cattle, and riding horses. Although we later sold our farm ground, my mom and I were about the only ones that insisted on keeping the most expensive thing on the farm.. horses. Riding horses was something that my mom and I enjoyed doing together and I followed in her foot steps by entering the Rodeo world. Growing up in the rodeo world is also what led me to meeting my brand new hubby when we were just kids.. the rest is history. I participated in Junior Rodeo where I qualified for Nationals, and High School Rodeo where I qualified for State many years. I am still obsessed with anything horses and my Summer consists of wife duties, food, rodeos, family, and sunshine. 

When I graduated High School I chose to attend College of Southern Idaho and left with my Associates Degree under my belt. Being away from home wasn't my cup of tea so I returned home and began going to school online through Western Governors University. I began this program with the hope of becoming a Special Education Teacher because of the influence of my AWESOME younger brother, Wylee who has Downs Syndrome. I later figured out how much paper work that entailed and quickly changed my degree to Elementary Education. I am FINALLY seeing the end of the tunnel and will be wrapping up my schooling very soon. 

 

It's still unreal to me that I ended up in West J, but the countless football and basketball games I have watched my brothers in, the fact that my mom is a Teacher out here and the wonderful people has made it my new forever place. I'm so thankful for all the amazing people and students that have made it feel like home.
