I am so excited to spend time with your kids in the library this year! I am passionate about reading and hope to create a love of books and learning with your kids.
I am originally from Sandy, Utah but have lived in Maine and Georgia as well. I have loved the opportunity to live out of state to explore new areas and meet new people. I graduated from Utah State University in 2008 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. While in Georgia, I completed my Masters of Reading Education at The University of Georgia. Go Dawgs!
I have been blessed to be at home with my children for the last six years. I have two children ages 6 and 4. I am excited to get back into teaching and now I get to bring my kids with me. I have two parakeet birds and a cute dog named Max. My husband is my best friend. We love to explore together. When we aren't busy with school, karate or dance we can be found hiking, swimming, biking or playing card games.
When I am not teaching or busy being mom I can be found reading, biking, podcast listening, planning my next vacation, and spending time with my family and friends. I love to explore the world through reading but also in person. My most exciting trip so far was when I traveled to Israel and then Egypt. I have a long list of places I want to go see.
My favorite food is mozzarella cheese. My favorite color is purple. I have always loved polar bears and white tigers. I look forward to learning more about your students and get to know the Hawthorn Family!
