|I was born and raised in the Idaho Falls area. After graduating from Brigham Young University with a BA in History and certifying in Special Education, I started teaching students with learning disabilities. I taught Special Education and World History in Rigby, Bonneville, Idaho Falls, and Jordan (Utah) School Districts for a total of 36 years. I enjoy traveling, golf, quilting, and reading historical fiction. Four years ago I joined Friends for Learning and have enjoyed being on the curriculum committee and cultural cuisine committee.
