Degrees and Certifications:
A little about me.
Well, I was born and raised right here in Snohomish County. I grew up attending the Snohomish School District and graduated from Snohomish High School in 1992. I then went to Edmonds Community College and received my AA. After that, I transferred up to Western Washington University and earned a BA in Elementary Education with a major in English. The year after I graduated from Western I started working here at Gateway. I have been teaching at Gateway for 21 years now. While teaching, I enrolled in Walden University and earned my Masters degree.
Family is the most important aspect of my life! My husband and I live in the community with our two children. Michael, my husband, and I were married November 9, 2003. We have a 15 year old daughter named Grace; she is a freshman at Jackson. Our son, Ryan, is 12 and a 6th grader at Gateway. We spend the majority of our time living in this community, but in the summers we move to Central Washington to an area known as Crescent Bar. There, my husband and I own and operate a restaurant and clothing store. We also own a clothing store in Chelan.
Outside of school and work, I love to spend time with family and friends. Sports are a major part of my life, both playing myself and watching my kids play. Plus, I can't live without my Seahawks and Sounders. I love to be outside as much as possible playing in the water or taking walks.
