• logo Welcome to another fantastic year!

    I LOVE GATEWAY! My children were students here, and I was amazed at the fabulous education they gained. I feel fortunate and excited to be teaching here.

    A bit of history about me... I grew up in Grandview, Washington.  I attended the University of Washington after high school and graduated with a degree in English and teaching.  Later I received my Master’s from Seattle Pacific University in Reading and Language Arts.  I taught in Salzburg Austria for a couple of years after college; spent many years teaching and in leadership at Monroe High School, and then taught at Sky Valley Education Center for several years (an alternative school/PPP)  before coming to Gateway. My husband is a math teacher at Chrysalis school, and my two children:  Hunter (18) is a graduate of Jackson High School and is attending Seattle University; Hannah (17) is a junior at Jackson High School attending Running Start at Edmonds Community College--education is our middle name! :)

    I am very excited to have your student in class  and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
