I have been teaching ELA and Leadership for the last 17 years at Marysville Middle School. I earned a Master’s in Ed., am Nationally Board Certified in ELA and have a CTE Cert in Business Management. I learned so much in Marysville and really grew into a great teacher. After many years, I was ready to “leave the nest” and my home to try a new adventure. I am very excited to transition to Lake Stevens High School and become a Viking! I love the focus on relationships and high quality education in Lake Stevens School District.
I am married with two boys. Baseball is our life!! My oldest goes to Bradley University on a baseball scholarship and my youngest is at Cavelero and plays baseball year round. My husband also coaches for MP (we’re working on a transition!). The majority of my free is on a ball field.
At school, I love teaching and I love my students. My personal philosophy is around building relationships with as many students and staff as possible. When we all know each other, the discussions and learning become much richer!
Personally, am a lifelong learner! I am always researching, reading, or pursuing new information. I have many interests outside of school. I am a die hard Seahawks fan (Go Hawks!!!). I also volunteer quite often, mostly with NOAH, who I foster kittens with. Finally, I love to travel and spend much of my down time in the air or on the road (usually headed to baseball :).
