Personal Information of Note
My Husband is a (Mechanical) Draftsman for Amalgamated in Twin Falls who has a number of certifications for all areas of welding, and obtained his schooling at Ricks College and CSI. We have five children: Justin, Jarid, Jacob, Jasmine, Jordon and 12 grandkids. We enjoy weight-lifting, racket-ball, bike-riding, Tae Bo, movies, Sunday family dinners, and supporting our children in their sports. Our lives revolve around our family and our work. We have raised our children to love reading and learning,with the expectation that they will attend CSI.
Life is an ever-changing and dynamic progress most effectively done through a systematic approach and with 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 a clear understanding of how students "need to know". The students drive the subject content and my teaching, not from a century ago, but from 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 and authority, through personal intuition and through experimentation, from our own five senses and our own power of reasoning. I reflect on the students' interests, on what motivates them, and on their process of change to provide "Learing Expereinces."
Inquiry-based learning is Intentional Learning around MeaningfulContent, making direct Relational Connections between the new generation of students to nontraditional student, challenging all of us to be better teachers. I teach the Language of Questions and the Power of the Brain to resolve problems to these questions.
