Welcome to the 2017- 2018 school year!
I feel so lucky to be your child's 2nd grade teacher and am looking forward to an extraordinary year!
I feel honored to work with such great students, families and an amazing staff! It's a wonderful place to learn and work together. I try to share that passion and joy with my students each day.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy walking, reading, shopping, spending time with friends and family, and sipping Starbucks vanilla lattes. On weekends, my husband and I enjoy cheering on our favorite sports teams (i.e., Seahawks, Huskies, Mariners, Lancers). We have three awesome children: our daughter Ashley graduated from Penn State and now lives back in the area. Ryan graduated from Seattle Pacific University and Jason is a senior at California Baptist University in California where he also plays basketball for the Lancers. We enjoy spending lazy summer days together near the waters of Lake Chelan!
Your child's success depends greatly on our teamwork: parent, child, teacher, and school. With everyone's partnership, our classroom is alive with a love of learning! My goal is to help all students develop a sense of responsibility and resilience toward learning. I have high expectations for all of my students, I value their unique qualities, and I treasure their precious friendships. Second grade is an important year, full of academic and personal growth. I feel very privileged to be your child's teacher. It's going to be a great year!
