I am very passionate about students, and love waking up everyday to go to work. I have grown up in the classroom, having lots of family who are or have been teachers. I graduated from City University of Seattle with my bachelors in elementary education, with an endorsement in ELL. I did my student teaching in the Lake Stevens School District and I am thankful to live in Lake Stevens—and not only work in the school district—but to have my daughter go through the schools as well. I love living here in the pacific northwest, and enjoy hiking, and exploring the beaches. Teaching is my dream job, and I’m thankful to work with kids, and watch them grow each year!
