I began my teaching career at Olympic View in 1991. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Business and Economics and completed my Masters in Teaching at the University of Puget Sound. Over my years at Olympic View I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade. It is my goal to instill the love of learning in my students. I believe that every child is gifted in their own way and it is my intent to help them recognize and develop their potential.
I am the founder and chess coach of the Olympic View Eagles Chess Club, which has been a part of our school for more than 10 years. In our chess club we not only have fun, but also develop our critical thinking and problem solving skills, improved concentration, sportsmanship, and enjoy the thrill of a mental challenge. The OVE Chess Club has always participated in regional tournaments and the Washington State Elementary Chess Championships. Chess Club is up and running with 50 students participating for the 2017-2018 season.
I love teaching and look forward to another great year working with your child.
