• Welcome! I am excited to be teaching Photo 1, Photo 2 Digital and Photo 2 Analog, Advanced Photo Workshop and AP Photography.  I love working with high school students who are exploring their creativity and learning. 
     
    I have been a teacher, worked for a non-profit, run my own business, and worked for a Fortune 500 company. I earned my Bachelor of Science at Oregon State University (Go Beavers!) in Education with concentrations in English and Journalism. Continuing with the orange and black theme, I earned my Masters at Lewis & Clark College in Language Arts. I have earned endorsements in Language Arts, Journalism, Art, and Continuing Technical Education.
     
    Outside of school, I enjoy running and hiking, photography, gardening, reading and way too many things to list. I love spending time with my family, whom you will hear probably hear stories about, or see photos of, if you take my classes. My husband and I also have three kitties and chickens.
     
    In August, I passed the five year mark as a survivor of breast cancer. I am happy to be here, and to share my joy of learning with you!
