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.
