Welcome! 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 and have a graduate degree in Education.  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.
