I have been teaching since 1977 in Tacoma, Aberdeen, and North Thurston Public Schools. I am originally from the North Seattle area and graduated from Blanchet High School. The colleges I have attended were Edmonds Community College and The University of Puget Sound in Tacoma where I earned my undergraduate degree in 1977. Years later, I achieved a Master's degree in Curriculum Development from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I have been on the River Ridge staff since 1994, serve as Program Leader for Social Studies, and look forward to working with this year's students.
