Hello! I am thrilled to be working with your child (and you) this year! I feel so blessed to be here in 3rd grade.
I grew up in Tacoma, Washington constantly surrounded by family as the oldest of six children and the second oldest of 60+ cousins! I loved growing up engulfed in so much activity and believe it uniquely prepared me for teaching. In my 17 years of teaching elementary and 5+ years as a sub/long term sub, I have taught preschool through 8th grade from Alaska to Gig Harbor to Snoqualmie to Issaquah. I joined the Creekside community in 2015 as the Reading Specialist/LAP teacher and am BEYOND EXCITED to be part of the 3rd grade team. I live in Sammamish with my husband (Travis) and two teenaged boys (Nathan and Aidan). When I am not being a fan at my boys’ various activities, you can find me reading, walking my dog Zaga (Go Zags!), spending time with friends, ordering coffee at Starbucks, taking a dance class, practicing yoga, or visiting my family!
