Hello from Room 312! 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year, wohoo! I hope you all had a wonderful summer. I am so excited to be back at Ridgecrest. I know I am somewhat of a new face, so I just wanted to take the time to share a little bit about myself and what has led me here. The summer of 2018, I completed my Master in Teaching program through Seattle U with both my Elementary Education (K-8) and ELL endorsements. Starting in the spring of 2017, I began working at Ridgecrest and have been here ever since. I completed my student teaching with Stephanie Laviola and was fortunate to stay the whole school year to long-term sub for her as she went on maternity leave. Last year, I taught 5th grade here at RC as well.

On a more personal note, I have a boyfriend (Reggie) and two amazing pups. We have a 4 year old Yorkie named Zoe and a 6 month old Labradoodle puppy named Charlie. Charlie sure kept us busy and on our toes this summer! I have also played soccer my whole life and it is still is a huge part of my life today. I played competitively growing up, and even got to play part way through college. GO SOUNDERS!

I feel incredibly fortunate to be at Ridgecrest. There is something to be said about the community here and I truly don't want to be any place else. RC has always been home for me. I am so excited to be back and see so many familiar faces! It is going be a wonderful year!
