I am very excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year as a first grade teacher! After 14 years of teaching kindergarten, I decided to make the move up to first. This will be my fifth year at Sandy Grade school.
I have a Master’s Degree in Education with a focus in Reading and Literacy as well as an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement from Portland State. I hope to instill a love of reading among all of my students and create an atmosphere where students are excited to learn and challenged to meet their full potential. I love being a teacher and can’t imagine doing anything else as a profession! When I’m not teaching, I like being outdoors and playing with my cats Huck and Finn. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, running, traveling and spending time with my friends and family.
