Degrees and Certifications:
BA: University of Washington, English Masters: Central Washington University, Master Teacher Gifted and Talented Endorsement WRHS Room A212
I have worked for the Blaine County School District since 2003. I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in English, and I continued on with a Masters in Education from Central Washington University. After earning these degrees, I pursued my endorsement in gifted education. Teaching has been an absolute dream job for me as I enjoy nothing more than learning and helping others discover the wonders of the world. I value travel and adventure, nature and observation, change and risks. A core lesson I teach my own children is to be unafraid of making mistakes for that is how we grow and what makes life interesting. I'm a big believer in the growth mindset which says we can always improve our knowledge, our habits, and our relationships. Above all else, kindness and compassion are my most valued character traits. My role has been split as half-time English teacher, half-time GATE facilitator for the past 12 years. I have enthusiastically embraced my new role as full time GATE Facilitator this year and hope to expand and build upon the program.
