National Board Certified Teacher
My husband, twin sons, and I have lived on wonderful Whidbey Island for 16 years. As a Navy family, we lived in 13 other places before arriving here including Illinois, Maine, Virginia, California, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico. I attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education in 2001, a National Board Certification in 2013, and a Master of Science degree in Elementary Literacy in 2016. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner and continually seek to improve my skills as a teacher.The slogan of a popular reading program when I was growing up said, "Reading is fundamental." Reading IS a fundamental, foundational necessity for all other learning. At Olympic View, we believe that all students can read, learn, and be successful. We achieve this by ensuring that students get the instruction that best meets their needs and promotes a love of reading and learning that lasts beyond a child's school years.
