Hello, 5th 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 fifth year teaching with Mrs. Atkinson - but our FIRST year teaching 5th grade together. I think we make a great team.
My husband was in the Navy, so my family has 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 imagine a better place to live. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and walking around Seattle. I have two adult children who inspire me every day - watching them grow up has been the joy 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 actually liked it until after I finished 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!
