Welcome! I am very excited to have your student in class this year and look forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
This is my 14th year teaching English and Social Studies. After working at the district office as an instructional facilitator for two years, I returned to Gateway Middle School to teach 6th grade English and History (Social Studies). This is a partnership: In our class, students contribute to their learning and learning environment.
In 2005, I earned my B.A. in Education and English from Western Washington University. I also have a Master's of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Seattle Pacific University.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions and concerns.
