What do you love to do on the weekend? Spend time with my family, read a good book, and watch my favorite TV show, Death in Paradise.

If you could have lunch with any fictional character, who would it be? Elizabeth Bennet

Who is your favorite teacher and why? English Professor at Ricks College, Mr. Grant.  When I wanted to give up and quit school, he made me feel smart and capable.

If you were given a $1000 - what would you buy? A new back-splash for my kitchen.

What song would you sing at Karaoke night? Take on Me by A-Ha

Who or what inspires you? Right now my daughter really inspires me, as she serves an LDS mission in Peru

Memory of school: When I was in the third grade my teacher moved our desks into a big circle.  The desks were the big metal kind where the top of the desk lifted up. I didn't like the boy she sat me next to, so I scooted my desk all the way into the middle of the circle.  It made a loud, screeching noise on the tile floor. My teacher wasn't very happy with me, so she took me behind the coat closet and spanked me. Thankfully they don't allow that anymore, but I never moved my desk again!

What is the best thing about your job? I really enjoy seeing the students progress and grow and become confident readers.

Mrs. Pickering’s class just finished reading “The Dot”. They learned how everyone is capable of doing something great! They spent some of their day using watercolors to make their own dot.

Reaction Time

Our fifth graders had a visit from Reaction Time from Discovery Gateway.  Scientist Phill visited and presented an assembly where he talked about lab safety, states of matter and chemical changes.  After the assembly, the students were able to participate in a lab where they got to mix different chemicals and determine whether those mixed chemical created a chemical or physical reaction.  It was a fun afternoon!
