Degrees and Certifications:
This year I can be found in Room 23 in "The Pod." 5th grade is a great year, and I look forward to a year of exploration and discovery. In our class we will work hard and play hard. We will take chances, make mistakes, and try new things. We will stick our necks out to make a difference in our school community and world! We are a Kindness Certified School at Echo Lake. Kindness Counts!
I have taught preschool, first grade, second grade and fifth grade. I love 5th Grade! I have always been excited to work with intermediate students and help them enter middle school with strength in their skills and knowledge of themselves. I received my degree in Social Work from the University of Washington and Elementary Education from Western Washington University. This will be my 16th year at Echo Lake.
I am the proud mother of Kia and Andrew. It seems like they were Echo Lake students just a short time ago! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My favorite places are the beach and on roller coasters! I like to read and laugh.
