Hello! I grew up in the Edmonds School District graduating from Mountlake Terrace High School. I later received my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Theatre. Four years ago I began substitute teaching in the Lake Stevens School District and loved it. Two years later I was given the opportunity to teach in a DD preschool classroom at the Early Learning Center in our district and have spent the better part of the last couple of years there. My love for the teaching profession prompted me to update my degree by attending the alternate route to teaching program through City University, which I should finish by the end of this school year with a dual teaching certificate in Elementary and Special Education.
I am married with 5 children who all attend school right here in the Lake Stevens School District. As a family we love to spend time outdoors hiking, camping, and playing sports. We also enjoy music, theatre, and of course learning new things. My husband and I spend our free time 40 feet in the air running the rope course and zipline at Fire Mountain Scout Camp.
