5th grade marks my 11th year teaching in the Park City School District, and my 5th year teaching 5th grade here at Parley’s Park Elementary School. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time traveling, camping and bike riding with my husband and my 5 and 7 year old children.
I look forward to sharing an exciting year with you!
