Hi I'm Carrie

I teach 9th graders about the Earth. I'm a nerd and have a huge rock collection. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fan of nature. I love to incessantly ramble on about plate tectonics and the history of the Earth. I have the best and the hardest job in the world as a teacher. I get to help people every day of my life. This year I was lucky enough to get a teaching award...of course this was probably just due to the fact that I have no life and so I spend more time at work :). I love my family especially my nieces and nephews. I want a family of my own. I am grateful for everything I have been given in life...the friends I need to get through all the hard parts of life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I choose to be. When I go to church each week, I am reminded of why/how I need to be a better person. The world needs good people so why not go to a place that teaches you to be good to others and good to yourself. I am a scientist. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally, and even scientifically. I love it! It enlightens me. Through my religious convictions, I have seen my life tranform into things I am proud of. I still have a long ways to go before I can ever be considered a great person but I like to think that one day, if I continue to follow the teachings of Christ and follow his principles, one day I will become who I think I should be.

How I live my faith

I go to church and try to learn something every week. That is the biggest way to live your religion. No one makes all choices correct but everyone should be trying to improve every day. I think about God and what he has done for me. I cry to him when I feel like I have been forgotten. I cry to him when I feel like I have forgotten him. I try to become better every day. I try to be a positive influence in the lives of those I meet. As a teacher (both in church and in school), I feel like I can make a huge difference so I make it my responsibility to represent as much good as I can.
