Dear Students and Families,
I am excited to join the Panther family this year! I am coming from Oak Harbor Elementary, where I taught fourth grade for the past 3 years. I moved to Oak Harbor from Arizona, where I taught 6th grade, high school, and college math. I am an officer in the Washington Army National Guard, but am getting ready to finally retire after 21 years! I also volunteer as a firefighter. In my free time, I enjoy coaching and playing soccer, hiking, and scuba diving.
My educational philosophy includes providing your child with a safe, enjoyable, and rigorous academic experience. I believe you, your child, and I should be the strongest advocates for your child's education, so if there is anything you or your child needs, please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
