I earned my teaching certificate from Central Washington University in 2000 and my Master of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University in 2007. In 2015, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in Early/Middle Literacy. I taught for 14 years in the Bethel School Districts in 3rd grade and Kindergarten. In 2014 I moved to Thurston County and began teaching at Chambers Prairie Elementary. I am happy to be a part of an amazing staff. I love working with primary students and watching them grow both academically and socially.
