I am very excited to have your student in my class this year. We have a busy year ahead of us in fifth grade, building friendships, developing independence, and preparing for middle school. I look forward to working closely with my students and their families to make this a fantastic year!
This is my second year at Forest View, but I have been teaching for fourteen years as a second, third, fourth and fifth grade teacher, with nine of those years as a teacher in highly capable programs. I graduated with my Bachelors from The Evergreen State College in 2002, Master in Teaching degree from the University of Washington in 2004 and received National Board Certification in early and middle childhood literacy in 2010. I love involving my students in exciting projects, and have a particular passion for teaching writing and science. I think I have the best job in the world!
