     Welcome to Fourth Grade Students & Families,


    I graduated from the University of Washington with my Bachelor's in Science and the University of Washington-Bothell for my teaching certificate.  I also worked as a Registered Nurse for many years in our local hospitals and communities.  Before that, I was a Russian linguist in the U.S. Army.  Always a lifelong learner, I am currently studying for my Master's Degree in English language learning.


    This year will certainly be unique in every way.  I feel confident and hopeful, however, that we all will rise up and embrace flexibilty, grace, and new ways of learning as we embark on this adventure together.  Our class will learn to navigate math, reading/writing, science, social studies, and technology more proficiently together and we will support and help one another through these challenges.  Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.  I am here to help you, your student, your family, and OUR community.


    Fun facts about me:

    • I was born in Seattle (and also lived in North Dakota for 7 years). 

    • I have 4 children, ranging in age from 9 to 21.

    • I am a Veteran, serving in the Army and a short time in the Navy.

    • We have 2 dogs (I'm sure you will get to know their names soon).

    • I love to travel (I really do) and have a passion for learning about different cultures and perspectives.

    • If I could go to Hogwarts, I would.

    • Star Wars is my favorite movie (besides HP).

    • There are so many fun things that I want to know about you!  Let's begin this year and find out about each other!

    I am so excited to meet you.  Welcome to our community!  You are welcome with open arms and big hearts from everyone here at Silver Firs!
