I am so excited to begin our new school year together.  Second grade is a time of increased independence, self-confidence, and relationship building. 
    My career in education is varied and extensive.  I have an English degree from Northern Kentucky University, earned teaching certification from the University of Cincinnati, and my graduate degree is from Antioch.  My teaching experience includes eighteen years in Seattle, eight in Department of Defense Schools, and four years in Everett.  I have a National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy, and am certified in Special Education and Reading.
    I love teaching because I can participate in the students' development as thinkers and learners as they become aware of their own ability to have agency in their lives. 
    I'll see you at the Back to School Event on September 6th from 3:30-4:30!
