I think teaching is the best job in the world...I just love it! I am enjoying teaching 2nd grade after many years teaching intermediate grades. Second grade is, by far, my favorite! I am eager to start my 17th year of teaching and to meet all my new students!
I was born in New Jersey, lived for a few years in Panama (my father was in the Army), then my family settled in Olympia where I attended Lydia Hawk, Evergreen Forest, Nisqually, and graduated from Timberline High School. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) in Communications. I decided to continue my education and earned my Master's Degree in Education from Pacific Lutheran University.
When I am not at school, I can usually be found spending time with my husband John and our son Rhys.
Communication is key to success. Please feel free to email or call any time. Email is usually the best way to reach me.
