Hello. I'm a multi-age (grades 4/5) classroom teacher here at Mt. Pilchuck Elementary. In fact, this is my 8th year on The Mountain. One of my dreams came true last year: Mt. Pilchuck Elementary is now a Leader in Me school! I couldn't be more optimistic and energized. My BA in French Literature is from Montclair State University in New Jersey. I did my teacher training at Western Washington University and I have a Master's Degree from Leslie University in Arts Integration. Last summer I started working toward earning an endorsement in Gifted Education through Whitworth University. My hobbies are long-distance cycling, yoga, knitting, rubber stamping, and, of course, reading.
People call me a Social Studies Geek! One of my heroes is Thomas Jefferson who believed that a democracy needs to have an educated populace. I agree with Thomas.
