I am a Bellevue native and I attended St. Louise and Holy Names Academy. I went to WWU for a BA in Psychology and my Teaching Certificate and received my Master's in Education Administration from Seattle U. I have been teaching since 1994. It is the best job because I get to make a difference in the world while having fun each day learning with the students. Outside of school, I like to cook, garden, and being out on the water. I also am a big fan of our Sounders!
I love the creativity and learning that goes on in 2nd grade. They inspire me! I especially love to see the "aha moments" and witnessing their growth academically and socially. In 2nd grade, the students can still be silly while learning and they love to share jokes with me. My students love to learn, especially about their faith and the natural world around them. And I love teaching them!
