  • This will be my 18th year teaching first grade in Oak Harbor. Our classroom provides a safe, positive, and productive learning environment. I am looking forward to working with your child this year,
    I grew up in Bellevue, Washington and lived in one house until I moved to Oak Harbor in 1994.  After graduating from the University of Washington, I taught first grade at Hillcrest Elementary for 9 years.  During that time, I received my master’s degree in education.
    From 2003 - 2014, I was a stay-at-home mom for my two daughters. I returned to the classroom in 2014 where I taught all-day kindergarten at Olympic View Elementary. In my spare time, I like to bake, garden, craft, organize, and run. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  
    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. By working together, we can help ensure the optimum learning for your child. Thanks for all you do!
