I love teaching kindergartners. I have been teaching in the kindergarten room at Edith Bowen for the past seven years. For the last 17 years I have been associated with Edith Bowen as a parent, part time staff and now as a teacher. I received a B.S. degree in communication from BYU many years ago. More recently I graduated with a masters degree in education from USU. (GO AGGIES!) My sweetheart and I have been married for 35 years and enjoy our six grown children, a son in law and soon to be daughter in law, and one adorable granddaughter. I love the outdoors; backpacking, hiking, cross country skiing, snowboarding and recently, sailing. I believe this quote sums up my philosophy: "It is our responsibility to cultivate children's delight in exploring and understanding their world. Early childhood is and should be a time of laughter, love, play, and great fun."
