One of my greatest passions is being a teacher. I knew I wanted to be a teacher at a young age and I am so blessed that I get to live out that dream everyday! I grew up in Auburn, California and moved to Redding in 2002 to attend Simpson University. While attending Simpson, I volunteered at Boulder Creek and eventually became one of the Fine Arts teachers for grades 1st-5th. In 2007, I taught 6th grade LA and Social Studies at Parsons Jr. High. After that year, I was then welcomed back to Boulder Creek to begin the new, exciting journey of teaching the first Jr. High class!
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Cody Brawley, for 10 years. He is a 6th grade math and science teacher at Parsons Jr. High. We enjoy being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and teaching our boys all about baseball! Go Angels!! I personally love reading, shopping, watching and going to baseball games, and Dutch Bro's Almond Milk Decaf Caramel Lattes!! Yum! Our oldest son, Dylan Cody, turned 4 on May 15th, and our youngest, Hudson Merrick, will be 1 on December 4th! They are so much fun and we love being parents!
