Hi I'm Dee.

I am a wife and mother. I love teaching. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I value the art of teaching. I received my degree at BYU in Elementary Education. I took my first teaching job as a fifth/sixth grade spanish immersion teacher. It was an incredible opportunity to teach these students who were quite fluent in the language. Later, I became a Spanish tutor. I love the Spanish language and culture. I also taught gymnastics, my favorite sport for ten years. I enjoyed teaching and working with kids. Now, I am a mother of four delightful girls. I spend most of my time assisting them with their homework, extra curricular activities, and social events. If I am able to squeeze in a few minutes for myself, I enjoy reading hisorical fiction, sewing and being active outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the truth of the message of this gospel in my heart. I am a member because I believe in Jesus Christ and this church brings me to a knowledge of who he is and what he desires of me. Because of my membership in the church, I have been guided and directed in my life. It has brought me such security, peace, and knowledge. It makes me happy. It gives meaning and purpose to living. I am a better person because of it. I continue in the gospel because I want to receive this direction and most of all because it strengthens my relationship with God and his Son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by improving my relationships in my own family. I set goals to better myself and my family. I pray for help in my efforts. I attend church every Sunday and benefit from the teachings and feelings felt there. I live my faith by serving others. I have the wonderful opportunity to work with the youth of the church. I am able to teach them and help them organize worthwhile activities and service projects. I am sure that I benefit just as much if not more than the youth in my service. They are vibrant and good. It renews my energy for life. I also live my faith by visiting with and teaching other women of the church monthly and have gained wonderful friendships as a result.
