Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Syre! I am a veteran teacher who has worked in the world of education for the last 18 years. Before joining the Shoreline family, I worked for a private school for students with learning disabilities, both teaching and being the assessment coordinator. I then worked for an educational technology company for 8 years conducting usability studies, collaborating with the instructional design team and providing teacher training and support. My earliest teaching experiences were all around early childhood education. I am excited to be returning to Syre and getting the opportunity to work with the wonderful educators and incredible students.
I have a Master's degree in Special Education from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) and a BA in Psychology from Eastern Connecticut State University. In August 2015 I finished all of the course work to take the exam to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I live in Mountlake Terrace with my husband Adam and our two sons, AJ and Avery. AJ is thrilled to be a 3rd grader, and Avery is at preschool, waiting impatiently to be a kindergratener in one more year. Both boys are into playing soccer and baseball and keeping me on my toes! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my boys play, reading, scrapbooking and swimming.
