Meet the Teacher
I graduated from Western Washington University in December of 1993. I subbed in various positions until that summer when I got a job teaching 1st grade at the Lummi Tribal School. It was an incredible experience, and I loved it! I was sad to leave, but we moved to Wilsonville, Oregon. I was a substitute teacher for a year, which let me see a lot of school districts in this area. Then in 1996, I was fortunate enough to get a job in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District. I was thrilled because this is the best school district around. I taught a 2/3 blend at Wilsonville Primary School until it closed in 2001. Then I had the honor of helping to open Boones Ferry Primary School. At that school, I either taught 2nd grade or I looped up to 3rd grade with my class. Since fall 2015, it has been my pleasure to call Sunset Primary School my home away from home. I have taught a 1/2 blend, 2nd grade, a 2/3 blend, and 3rd grade. No matter what I teach, I have a blast!
The pictures above capture three of my favorite things: spending time with my family, animals, and being out in nature. I also enjoy reading (yes - my name fits me), watching movies, and being active.
