I am currently in my 15th year of teaching. I began my teaching career in Rangely teaching third grade. After 7 years of third grade, I taught one year at fifth. My middle school teaching began when I left Rangely in 2002 and moved to Meeker. I have now been at Barone Middle School teaching Language Arts for 7 years. I received my teaching degree from Utah State University along with a minor in English. Since that time I have received many graduate credit hours with an emphasis on reading, writing, and discipline. I am highly qualified to teach LA and Social Studies.
