Subjects Taught
First Grade


I graduated from Weber State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education.


I have taught at David E. Norman since 2005.



I am excited to be the 1st grade teacher for STEAM Academy for the 2019-2020 school year! STEAM is a teaching approach where Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math are blended together with reading and writing to create engaging, rigorous learning experiences. Ms. Nicholes and Mrs. Fullmer will be teaching the same Nevada Academic Content Standards and curriculum as I, but we will all be teaching it a little bit differently. I will be focusing on answering questions, solving problems, and seeking real world application.  After school clubs are also planned and I tentatively will be coaching an Arts in Nature Club on Mondays. Please check the DEN Website for more information.


I have lived in Ely since the summer of 2005.  My family includes my husband Joe, my son Dannull, and my daughter Valentina. We love to go for hikes and collect rocks.
