I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University where I had the opportunity to student teach in the Clover Park school district as well as the West African country of Namibia. I received a Master of Arts in English Language Learning from Western Governors University. I taught 4th and 5th grade at Saltar's Point Elementary for seven years and am very excited to begin my sixth year at Pioneer! In my spare time I enjoy playing with my daughters and my tenacious terrier, George. This is an amazing community and I feel so fortunate to be a part of it!
