After graduating from Northern Arizona University, I got married, and my husband and I moved to Olympia, Washington. I got my first teaching job with North Thurston Public Schools district in 1996 and I have been here ever since. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. My favorite is second grade!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have two children. My son is sixteen, in his second year in high school and my daughter is thirteen, in middle school. We love to travel. Our favorite spot is Maui. At our house Friday night is movie night. We rent a good movie, pop some homemade popcorn, and snuggle up. I have also gotten into scrap-booking and card making in the last few years. My daughter enjoys making her own projects as I work on mine. I hope we continue to share that time as she grows. Lastly, I like to sit, relax, have a latte, and pick up a good book when I get the chance, which as many of you know when you have growing, busy children that is not always easy. I have become the taxi mom.
