Welcome to the 2023024 school year. Here’s a little bit about me. I grew up in Seattle and went to Western Washington University and also got my Master's degree in education from Lamar University. My favorite thing to do on the weekend is hiking and house projects. I have lived and taught in three foreign countries, so obviously I love new experiences and adventures. I hope that our year together will be another amazing adventure into learning, not only about math and reading, but about each other, about what it means to be successful, and how it feels to reach a goal. My classroom is a place to ask questions, to try new things, to be creative and to have a safe place to risk, because every adventure requires risk.
