About me

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts.  From there, I went on to get my Master in the Arts of Teaching from Pacific University.  I’ve been teaching for the last nineteen years.  I’ve taught grades kindergarten through fifth grade.  Don’t tell anyone, but first grade is my FAVORITE!  I love, love, love first grade energy, enthusiasm, sweetness and willingness to take risks and learn.  I call my firsties fearless learners.  It’s truly amazing what they accomplish this year.  I hope that your child has an amazing year.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, running, biking, swimming, doing yoga, reading, cooking and hanging out with my family, dog and two cats.
