Degrees and Certifications:
I am so happy to be a Meridian Park Cheetah! I am originally from Utah. I came to the University of Washington to get my MA in East European and Soviet History. I met my husband Derek and we decided to settle down in Shoreline (where he is from. He coaches wrestling at Einstein & Shorewood).
Before I had my kids I taught at Mountlake Terrace High School for 3 years. Then I turned my focus to a career in fitness and raising my 3 kids. I came back to teaching in the spring of 2017 as many of your Highly Capable Kindergarten teacher. I spent the last 4 years teaching 5th grade. I love it!
I love exercise, cooking, cleaning, reading (mostly audiobooks these days), and spending time outside. I have 1 Shorewood T-bird, 1 Einstein Tiger and 1 MP Cheetah in the family.
I’m so excited to be teaching Highly Capable 5th grade this year!
