Degrees and Certifications:
My philosophy is that a child’s teacher acts as a guide. I believe that children need to make their own discoveries to learn something well. Think of me as a cruise ship director ~ I’m there to make sure my students make the most of their grade level “trip” and get all they can out of this experience!
I am a graduate of Western Washington University with a major in interdisciplinary child development. I earned my master's degree in Learning & Technology from WGU. I also have an endorsement in library media & was the librarian at Mount Pilchuck for 2 years. Before that, I was at Highland Elementary as the reading teacher for 3 years and a 4th or 5th-grade teacher for 4 years. I've worked in the Lake Stevens School District since 2000 and I’m excited to again be able to work in our schools as we have such a wonderful staffs & such great community support.
My husband Ryan and I were married in 2002 and have been blessed with two wonderful daughters. Both have gone to Mt Pilchuck and went on to LSSD secondary schools. You can trust that I understand how busy the day is for parents and students!
Here’s to another wonderful year!
