Welcome to our classroom.
I grew up in Seattle, Washington, graduating from Summit High School. My teaching career began in LaCenter, Washington in 1989, after attending the University of Washington and The Evergreen State College. For the first three years, I worked at LaCenter Elementary School, teaching third and fourth grade, as well as conducting a Family Math Program. I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley College.
In 1992, my family moved to Olympia, Washington where I took a teaching position at Olympic View Elementary. I continued to teach second, third, and fourth grade, and a multigrade 2/3 classroom. Over the years I have been a math leader at both the district and building level.
In my spare time, I love to play games with my family, including my grandchildren. Reading, live theater and movies are my favorite entertainments. Favorite activities include Tai Chi and walking. Mrs. Cummings and I can often be seen walking the track at River Ridge.
Olympic View is a fabulous place to teach and learn. I’m glad you are joining me in this adventure!
