I'm excited to start my sixth year here at Timberline!
I previously taught Humanities at Chinook Middle School for two years. This year I will teach English Language Arts to sophomores, Journalism (The Blazer), Independent Reading and Poetry. No more balancing English with Social Studies as I did for three years.I came to teaching after 10 years as a newspaper reporter. During my transition into education, I first worked as a paraeducator (at Evergreen Forest Elementary) and volunteered in a few different North Thurston Public Schools. Later, I entered the Master in Teaching program at The Evergreen State College and graduated with my teaching certification and degree in June 2013. I student taught at Clover Park High School and at Marshall Middle School (Olympia School District).I really enjoy being a Timberline teacher. While I love seeing my previous students mature into tomorrow's leaders, I also look forward each year to getting to know students and families who are new to me. This year will be challenging as we begin with Remote Learning, but I still hope to build relationships with my students and their families as always.Go Blazers!
