Professional Biography

  • I have been a teacher at Horizons Elementary since September 1995. Before that I taught in the Tumwater School District. I am currently teaching third grade. I went to college at Arizona State University and St. Martins University, where I completed my degree in Elementary Education. I have a minor in biological sciences and physical education. In 2004 I received my National Board Certification. I re-certified in 2014. I try to continue taking courses to stay current in my profession so am often in classrooms in the summer or after school learning and growing professionally.

    I have 2 adult daughters and 3 grandsons who are the light of my life.  I love spending time with them.  In my spare time, besides hanging with my boys, I love to read, play sports, cook and travel.  I have a passion for teaching and encouraging children to learn to love learning.
