Class Room: 4
Teaching 5th grade for the past 9 years has been such a joy to me! I love the enthusiasm that children this age bring to the classroom, and the amazing minds that they have!
Prior to teaching in the Lake Stevens School District, I taught in the Edmonds School District as a 3rd grade teacher, as well as serving as the Reading Support Teacher. I also taught a year in Concrete, WA as a 3rd grade teacher.
Besides receiving my degree at Washington State University, I received my Masters in Education in Integrated Teaching through the Arts from Lesley University, and my Professional Certificate from Seattle Pacific University.
Aside from teaching, many joys in my life include my husband, who teaches elementary PE in the Edmonds School District, our daughter, who amazes me with her drive for learning, and our son, who reminds us of the importance of play and laughter. Other interests of mine include music, mountain biking, kayaking, laying on the beach enjoying a good book, having deep conversations about life with good friends, and spending quality time with my family.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's life, and for teaming up with me to make this a great year!
