Welcome to the FFJHS Business Department . . .
and to my home page!
A Little About Me:
The most important thing you can know about me is that I love to teach -- it is one of my passions. It is my goal to make the time you are in my class profitable and a great experience. I attended Kaysville Elementary, Kaysville Jr. High and Davis High School. I began my teaching experience at Layton High School and have taught at North Davis Jr. and here at Fairfield Jr. since its opening. This is our 24th year here at FFJHS!
I graduated from Weber State University with a B.S. degree in Business Education and have acquired ESL and Health Occupations endorsements.
Interests and Hobbies:
When I am not preparing for school, I enjoy caring for and serving my family, working in my yard and flower gardens, quilting, cleaning my home, exercising, listening to "my tunes" and reading.
