Hello! After growing up in the Lake Stevens community and attending Lake Stevens schools, it is a privilege to be teaching in this district. I have taught 2nd grade at Mt. Pilchuck Elementary School since 2002. Teaching second grade is my passion because it is a year of tremendous growth for students. My goal is that my enthusiasm for learning and teaching will inspire children to love learning, and to become life-long learners. I strive to create a welcoming learning community that encourages students to discover their strengths, while also helping them gain the confidence to tackle their weaknesses. Together we can make this a terrific year!
