Hi there! This is my 8th year at Rosemont Ridge and I teach 7th grade Language Arts . I attended the University of Oregon (go Ducks!) and worked as a project manager in international business for many years before returning to graduate school at Lewis & Clark College to become an educator. Since then, I have taught a variety of subjects in middle schools, from Language Arts to Computers. The students of Rosemont are surprising in the best ways and I look forward to learning with them each day.
First and foremost, I love to read. I’ve always loved words. For me, getting lost in a book is the ultimate luxury. Through books, I can experience other lives, learn how other writers write, laugh, cry, get mad, fall in love, think for myself, and evolve as a person. Not surprisingly, my students will have the opportunity to do the same during our year together.
In my spare time, I also enjoy traveling and camping with my husband Kyle (also a teacher) and our daughter Wren. Our family also includes a rambunctious black lab, Fern.
