Welcome to 3rd grade! I am so excited to get started learning with your children!
I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Saint Martin's University in 2014. Along with an elementary education endorsement, I hold an endorsement in Special education as well. I have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Concordia Portland University. I have worked in North Thurston School district for several years and throughout my time I have taught grades 3 through 5. I love what I do and I could not imagine doing any other job. I truly believe that all children are special and that all children are capable of learning. I believe that children learn best when they feel good. Building relationships with students is the best part of my job. At the end of their day, they are people and I want all of my students to know that I care for them on a special and unique level. You are entrusting me with your babies and I promise to care for them like I care for my own. We all have bad days and I promise to do my best to make sure that every day for your child is a day full of learning and laughter.
I am so proud to work for a school district that puts kids at the center of everything they do. I'm looking forward to a very happy and long teaching career.
