I am entering my 15th year of teaching, 1 year at middle school, 8 years at 2nd grade and 5 years in 5th grade, and my current year in a 3/4 split class. If you're a teacher, you know that we have the best jobs in the world!
As much as possible, I use a workshop model in my classroom, focusing on small group instruction. I teach and expect students to take ownership of their education and provide engaging activities to inspire their learning.

I am thankful to work at a job that I absolutely love. After working for many years in the banking industry, I made a change to teaching and have never looked back. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and am the mom of 3 grown young men who make me proud every day.
