I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington and worked for several years in the business world as the Payroll Administrator and Human Resource Manager for our family's general contracting company. When we retired our business in 2001, I returned to the UW, obtained my teacher certification, and made a career change. Over the past 14 years I have been challenged and energized through teaching both 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at Gateway Middle School.
For the 2017/2018 school year, I will be teaching 7th grade Honors English for those 7th grade students who have opted to challenge themselves with the 8th grade literacy curriculum. It is my belief that learning should be relevant, rigorous and fun.
