My job as the ELA Coach has two components: working with kids to advance their reading skills and working with teachers to advance their teaching skills.

I have been at Garfield Elementary since 1995.  First grade was my home for seventeen years before becoming a coach.  My degree is from the University of Washington, which explains why I love watching Husky football on Saturdays.  

I had a very special teacher in high school.  Her name was Ms. Westering.  She taught me how to believe in myself and think positively about life. Wherever she is now, I hope she knows how much I appreciated her words of affirmation.  

If you come to Garfield, you'll soon find out what I love most about it...the staff and our students.
