Welcome to 8th Grade

    We read to know we are not alone.                 --C.S. Lewis

         Welcome to 8th Grade! I am so happy to be here to work with you this year. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Western Washington University with a focus on Elementary Education and English/Language Arts 4-12. I received my Master's Degree in Instruction & Technology from Western Governors University.  I've been teaching since 1987. There is no place I'd rather be than in this beautiful area. This is going to be a great year. You'll see.
