I graduated from Western Washington University with my BA in English Elementary Education. This is my thirteenth year teaching and I have been fortunate to have spent all eleven years in the North Thurston School District. Over the years I have taught 1st grade, 1st and 2nd multi-age, 2nd grade, 2nd and 3rd multi-age, and 3rd grade. I have also coached c-team basketball for 4 years and c-team volleyball for 5 years at North Thurston High School.
Each year brings a new adventure and I find myself continuously learning and growing as a teacher because of my students. My goal every day is to encourage and inspire a love for learning that will last them their entire lives.
