Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am so pleased to be your child's teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. It's going to be great! 4th grade is my all time favorite grade level because students are making deeper connections, they can focus like never before, and the curriculum is incredibly interesting. This will be a year full of meaningful learning, rewarding experiences, encouraging friendships, and significant growth.
A little about me:
This is my seventeenth year of teaching and I feel fortunate to be with Everett Public Schools. Prior to Everett, I was with Lake Washington School District where I taught grades 1, 2, and 3, was at Snohomish Schools at 1st grade, and was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom/part-time substitute teacher for several years while my children were young. I'm very happy to be teaching once again. The classroom has always been one of my "happy places".
I attended the University of Washington (GO HUSKIES!), earned my bachelor's degree at Central Washington University, and received my master's degree from Seattle Pacific University. I also attended Boston University and University of Oregon for summer semesters and enjoy learning new things every day. I am a native Washingtonian - was raised on beautiful Whidbey Island, and have visited all 50 states (Washington is my favorite, of course!).
I am very much looking forward to learning with this group of students!
All the best,
