    I work to provide a structured environment to explore the joy of music, singing, dance, theater, movement, games, sports and physical fitness. I utilize my personal vocal, trumpet, guitar and sports & fitness background in this pursuit. While helping my students develop skills in these areas, I encourage participation, taking risks and most importantly, having fun. 

    Learning is accomplished best when learning and teaching are fun!

    I am fortunate to have lived in this area all of my life. I graduated from Snohomish High School in 1974 and received a B.A. in Communication and Theatre Arts from the University of Puget Sound in 1978. I worked in my family's pharmacy and home health supply business for fifteen years. I then returned to school and earned my teaching certificate from City University in 1994. I taught kindergarten here at Skyline Elementary for 25 years. I am very excited to now be teaching and sharing my love for music and P.E.

    I have been happily married for over 35 years to a former high school teacher who is currently a wildlife biology field researcher and artist. We have two grown daughters. In addition to my teaching experience, I was the color analyst for high school football and basketball broadcasts on KRKO radio in Everett for over 30 years. I was a vocalist and played lead and solo trumpet with the Generation Gap Big Band for 19 years. I raced track bikes at the Marymoor Park Velodrome for six years and was a race official for three years. I was also an All-Wesco honorable mention basketball player at Snohomish High School (if anyone can remember back that far). Currently I am involved in community theater as an actor with the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts in Marysville and the Driftwood Players of Edmonds. I continue to be an avid bicyclist, commuting to school as well as participating in Cascade Bicycle Club group rides. I also love to read.
