Welcome to 3rd grade!
I am so excited to spend this year with you at Wilkes.
I am thrilled to be back teaching in the classroom in 3rd grade! I grew up on Bainbridge Island and attended Ordway, Woodward, and Bainbridge High School. I attended undergrad at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon (Go Bearcats!) and also studied abroad in Galway, Ireland. After college I moved to Las Vegas to teach. During my 8 years in Las Vegas I taught both primary and intermediate grades as well as special education. I earned master's degrees in both curriculum and instruction and special education at UNLV (Go Rebels!). I moved back to beautiful Bainbridge Island in 2013 and taught 4th grade at Blakely before moving to Wilkes as the Differentiation Specialist.
I live on Bainbridge with my husband, Chris, my kids Calvin (3) and Lizzie (1) and our two cats, Frank and Ron. I love to read, travel, listen to music, hike, cuddle my kitties, study history, spend time with my family, eat sushi, drink coffee, watch football (Go Hawks!) and of course, TEACH!
I cannot wait to see where the 2019-2020 school year will take us!
