I am thrilled to be teaching kindergarten at Evergreen Forest Elementary. I have been teaching in the North Thurston Public Schools since 1995. I have taught everything from special education preschool to 5th grade and loved each and every experience. I am blessed to work in the same amazing community and district that I attended as a child (Lakes Elementary, Nisqually Middle School, and Timberline High School). I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education from St. Martin's University. I have additional endorsements in reading and special education, as well as a masters in curriculum and instruction. I look forward to a very fun and exciting year. Thank you for entrusting me with your child.
