About me: I earned my BA in English at Western Washington University and my MA at Wake Forest University. I started my teaching career in the Portland area, moved to Bainbridge in 2000, and have taught at BHS since then. I live on Bainbridge Island with my husband, three children, and our dog, Bean.
Hello! I am excited for the 2022-2023 school year and looking forward to meeting you!
