Welcome to Kindergarten and the Brookside community! I am very excited for the 2018-2019 school year. I have been in the classroom for twelve years. I taught in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington with grades ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have truly enjoyed (rather loved) teaching students at all grade levels and feel the range of experience helps me better understand how children develop cognitively, emotionally and socially. My goal is to promote a warm environment where ALL children can and want to learn. My focus is to foster kindness, responsibility, and respect in our youngest students and help them begin their exciting journey into education.
I have three children that all currently attend Shoreline Schools. My daughters are in 3rd grade and my son is in 9th. My family and I love spending our time skiing, hiking, swimming, reading and relaxing in the great Northwest.

I look forward to meeting with you. Preferrably, this will be an adult only event. However, if you are unable to find childcare, bring your student.
