Welcome to our 5th Grade page!
I am SO excited to be part of the Woodside Toucans family! I was born in Hawaii and grew up in Alaska. I have a big family that live in all parts of the globe including: Alaska, Hawaii, Washington and the Philippines. I live in Everett and enjoy all the outdoor activities that the Northwest has to offer. My favorite outdoor activity is backpacking and astrophotography. I recieved both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Northwest University in Kirkland. I currently hold a Master's in Teaching. I enjoy a life of continuous learning.
I am very excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development. Having the opportunity to be a teacher is truly an honor. I became a teacher because I enjoy building strong connections with my students and their families. I enjoy guiding students to be successful on their own. Children can change the world and what better way to contribute to that fragile stage then mentoring them in the best way possible; academically, socially, and emotionally. I have taught 5th grade for 1 year at Woodside Elementary School. I look forward to meeting you!
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
