I was raised in Burley, Idaho. My family consisted of 6 sisters and 1 brother. My parents owned a sporting good store; we all worked in it. I learned many things about sports,hunting, fishing, skiing and anything that an be done outside. My husband and I have nine children I had 4 and he has 5 so we have the Brady bunch. I am a proud grandma of 13 grandchildren. My favorite pastimes are painting , chalking, sewing and crocheting. I love to camp and hike. I have worked with children for 28 years. Its my calling. I love watching their eyes light up when they figure it out. I have enjoyed working at the greatest school for 3 1/2 years.
