Hi I'm Colette

I'm a wife & mom. I'm a special education teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read & travel. I have 3 children, one of whom is deaf, visually impaired, developmentally delayed and autistic. I teach special needs high school age students.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents brought me up in the church which has provided me a strong foundation throughout my life. I had the opportunity to attend BYU and do my student teaching abroad in the beautiful country of Tonga. While there, I lived in the MTC, right next to the temple and taught in LDS church schools. Being on my own in a foreign land allowed me to develop a deep and personal relationship with my Savior. I was able to integrate the gospel teachings into my daily instruction with students which helped me to see the scope of Heavenly Father's plan. I am so grateful for my membership in the church. When difficult times arise, I am able to get on my knees and ask for assistance and comfort. Knowing that if I remain true to the covenants I've made in the temple, I will be with my family forever and that this life is my opportunity to prove my worthiness. I love the prophet. I am thankful for the courage of Joseph Smith to stand up for what he believed in and his role in the Restoration of the Gospel. The scriptures are true and testify of Jesus and his example.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the Activity Day Girls who are between ages 8-11. We meet 2 times a month and work on a variety of skills. I am also my son's personal primary teacher. Since he is unable to sit for more than a few minutes at a time and does not do well in crowds, we spend much of our time interacting with a variety of members in the hallways.
