I love teaching!
I remember being in school and giving my teacher such a puzzled look when she told me I couldn't use my fingers to do math. What else was I supposed to use? She was so kind to show me that I could do more than I thought possible at the time. I needed that tender persuasion to use strategies, number sense and memorization.
Inspiring young children to do more than they imagine and to love learning takes them much farther in life than simply pushing them through their studies. This is what I strive to accomplish.

I have a background of country living growing up in Cody, Wyoming on a beautiful Arabian horse ranch. In high school I was involved with 4-H. I won trips to Washington D.C. for success in leadership, Chicago for record books on horses, and a trip to Virginia to study horseback riding for the handicapped. I won many awards training horses. I love nature and appreciate life. I toured Europe with the United Methodist Choir singing in cathedrals across the country. I home schooled my five children one being a special needs child. I am dedicated to adding heart to learning, educating the whole child. My passion is to inspire children to do more than they think is possible. My background, experience, and love for children is the perfect combination for my time at Belmont Academy.
