Personal Information of Note
My Husband is a Welder/Mechanic for Amalgamated in Twin Falls. He has a number of certifications for all areas of welding, and obtained his schooling at Ricks College. We have five children: Justin, Jarid, Jacob, Jasmine, and Jordon.We enjoy weight-lifting, racket-ball, bike-riding, Tae Bo, movies, nice family dinners, and supporting our children in their sports. Our lives revolve around our family and our work. My husband loves to read historical books about Indian cultures, and I enjoy all books relating to current educational or administrational issues.
Life is an ever-changing and dynamic progress most effectively done through a systematic approach and reflection on the past. Goal setting and personal objectives drive education and are part of that change process. Through my experience and education as a teacher and administrator, I have an understanding of what students need to know. The subject matter and content drive my teachings, not from a century ago, but from within a decade or two and around pertinent issues for today's times and problems that we face tomorrow. Learning takes place through reading, vicariously, and by actual experiences. Among the ways of knowing or obtaining knowledge are by divine revelation, by authority, through personal intuition, from our own five senses, from our own power of reasoning and through experimentation. I tend to base my learning and teaching on past experiences and reflections of those experiences to guide my future decisions toward a productive life. I am concerned with the students' interests, what motivates them, and their process of change.
