Hello, 6th Graders!
I am so looking forward to meeting all of you ~ being a teacher is the best! I love the learning and the laughing that seems to fill every day.
I have been teaching at Sakai since 2011, and this will be my fourth year teaching with Mrs. Atkinson and Mr. Moore. I think we make a great team.
My husband was in the Navy, so we have lived all over the world. We have been in Washington since 2007. I have a feeling we'll be staying here for a long time to come because I can't think of a better place to live. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and walking around Seattle. I have two adult children. Watching them grow up, and being a part of their lives, has been the most rewarding experience of my life.
Teaching Language Arts is my passion. I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. While I really enjoy writing now, I have to admit, I didn't realize I liked it until after high school.
I am excited to start our year together and to spend time getting to know all of you - to learn about you while you learn about yourselves and the world around us!
