I have the privilege of teaching a wonderful 5th grade class at a private Christian school just outside of Seattle, Washington
I love making learning fun and memorable. I want the students to look back on their year with me as one where they were challenged, stretched, and had their confidence grow because of all they accomplished.
I was named Teacher of the Year at my school in 2013. I received the BrainQuest Teacher of the Month award in August 2012. On the Praxis 2 for Elementary Education Content Knowledge I scored in the top 15% of all test takers.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
