Dear Students and Families,
Over a decade ago, I went to college right here in Oak Harbor at a Western Washington Extension Branch. I graduated magna cum laude from Western Washington University. Since then, I have been working for the Oak Harbor School District. I love living and working in this wonderful community.
In my classroom, I strive to build our community with a positive attitude. We hold class meetings to share our gratitude with each other. I hope to be a mentor you can turn to if you need help. I strive to be a servant leader.
I love Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) almost more than Reading and Writing. So, it’s no surprise that my classroom is often buzzing with the excitement of learning. We will be engaged in hands-on science lessons. We’ll be using Chromebooks and iPods to learn coding and so much more. We’ll be using abacuses and number lines to add and subtract up to three-digit numbers. We'll spend time in the school garden reading, writing and examining nature's beauty up close.
When I'm not teaching, I'm busy learning. I am in the middle of my Master's degree program in Learning and Technology. To relax, I dig in the dirt and help our school be green with recycling, composting and gardening.
I love to help plants and students grow!
