Language Arts has always been a passion of mine however, family is important as well. I grew up in Southern California and went to Christian Schools all throughout my childhood. Lynn, my husband and I met when we were freshmen in high school and attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids Michigan together. After graduating with a Bachelor's in Education, we moved back to Southern California. I taught 1st grade for 5 years. After those 5 years of teaching, I"retired" to start a family. We were blessed with 4 wonderful boys. We moved from California to Idaho in 2004 and in 2007 I began working at Nampa Christian and got my Master's of Education in 2009. During this time, my husband and I bought Myatts Shirts and Sports where he is a graphic artist and screenprints for several business' and schools.
As a family we enjoy motorcycling, hiking, and playing sports. While I am relaxing, you will often find me curled up with a coffee reading a good book or gardening. Spending time with family and friends are extremely important to me as I find it is with those people with whom I am blessed.
