Classes Taught

  • 6th Grade


  • Western Washington University


I graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in East Asian Studies but returned to school in 2011 to obtain my Master’s in Elementary Education. I worked for the Bellingham School District as a para-educator and substitute during and after completion of my teaching program.  My family and I relocated back to my hometown of Vancouver last summer.  I have worked for both Vancouver and Evergreen School Districts as a substitute teacher. I love the energy and ideas that middle school students bring to school each day.  Outside of the classroom I like to spend as much time as possible with my husband, daughter, our dog Cash, and cat Peppermint.  We like to play games, and go hiking and swimming.  My hobbies are reading, running and volunteering.
