    Welcome to first grade!  

    EDUCATION:  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Washington University in 1993. I then went to work teaching in the Hoquiam School District for the next 8 years. During this time, I earned my Master’s Degree from the University of Portland taking classes at night and on weekends. In 2001 I came to work for the South Bend School District and have been here ever since. Over the course of my career, I’ve taught Title I reading and math, first grade, a first/second split, and second grade. People always ask me which grade level has been my favorite but I can’t honestly answer that. Each one has its own special magic to it. I feel like whatever grade I’m currently teaching, is my favorite. :)

    A few of my favorite things...

    FAVORITES:  My favorite things definitely include anything having to do with my family. I have a husband, a 14 year old daughter, and a crazy-hyper cat. I love reading long books, drinking Diet Coke, gardening, and restoring antique furniture. My family enjoys traveling and taking road trips to places we’ve never been.
