Who Is This New Teacher At Brookside?

Submitted by liz.porter on
I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona with my three siblings and parents. I am the aunt to two nieces, who just started Kindergarten, and two nephews, one who just started preschool and another who was born at the beginning of August. I love to be with my family and make fun memories with them. I recently was married to my husband Tyler Willis. We just moved this summer to Utah so my husband can go to school at BYU.

Some of the things that I love to do are swim, read, travel, watch sports, and go on adventures.
