Welcome to the 2018-2019 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 to Ridgecrest, so I just wanted to take the time to share a little bit about myself and what has led me to Ridgecrest this year. Over this past summer, I completed my Master in Teaching program through Seattle University with both my elementary education and ELL endorsements. Starting in the spring of 2017, I began working at Ridgecrest and have been here ever since. Last year, 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.

On a more personal note, I have a boyfriend and a 3 year old Yorkie puppy named Zoe. I have played soccer my whole life and it still is a huge part of my life today (GO SOUNDERS). I played competitively growing up, and even got to play part way through college. I feel incredibly fortunate to be back at Ridgecrest. There is something to be said about the Ridgecrest community here and I truly didn’t want to be any place else. I am so excited to be back and see so many familiar faces on my class list this year. It is going be a wonderful year ahead!
