Hello! Welcome to first grade! I grew up in Aberdeen and graduated from Aberdeen High School. I started my post high school education at Grays Harbor College where I earned my Associate in Arts degree. I then attended Western Washington University where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education. After teaching for 13 years, I obtained a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley University.
When I am not teaching or planning lessons, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, beach combing, doing cross stitch, traveling, and spending time with my family.
