    This is my 22th year of teaching in the Steilacoom School District.
    My first 11 years were spent at SHS; this is my 11th year at Pioneer.
    What a great school and fantastic students!

    I am a native of Washington, growing up in DesMoines. I attended DesMoines Elementary, Pacific Junior High, and Mt. Rainier High School, part of the Highline School District.

    I earned my Bachelors Degree at Central Washington University and my Master's Degree at City University.

    Teaching is my second career. My first career, of 18 years, was in Sporting Goods at Sturtevant's Sports .
