I consider it a privilege to teach at Aspire and am excited about meeting this year's batch of new students. I teach sixth grade social studies and sixth grade Challenge Academy English and social studies. In addition, I share my love of yoga first period…every body can benefit from yoga!
After growing up in Minnesota and earning my B.A. at Colby College, Maine with a year at Oxford University, it was only a matter of time before I checked out the northwestern side of the country. So began the next chapter of my life--ten years teaching English, history, and French at Charles Wright Academy in Tacoma. During that time I also taught aerobics and completed an M.Ed. at the University of Puget Sound.
Next came four years in South Carolina, where I taught yoga and vegetarian cooking in the community and creative journaling at USC and an alternative high school. In 1992 we returned to the Northwest, this time to Salt Spring Island, B.C. The highlight of that eight years was becoming mother to my two daughters who are now in high school and college.
In 1996 we returned to Washington and have been in Olympia ever since--where else can you both kayak and snowshoe/ski in the winter? After a year at Holy Family School, I moved to NTPS where I taught Learning Support, School-Based Enrichment, and Sixth Grade TAG before moving to Aspire when it opened in 2009.
