Hello parents and guardians of Crescent Harbor Elementary School students!
I am very excited to be joining the Crescent Harbor team this year as one of the Title I Literacy Specialists. I completed my BA in elementary education in January of this year, so yes, I am a first year teacher! I'm thrilled to begin my career here in Oak Harbor School District. I completed my student teaching at South Whidbey Elementary School. Prior to that, I spent three years as a Title I Instructional Assistant at an elementary school in Utah, where I grew up. I'm so happy that life has brought me to this beautiful island. I have an amazing husband, two wonderful stepdaughters, and a baby girl that was born in December. I'm excited to begin this next chapter in my life!
I have a passion for teaching and for seeing young minds learn and grow. I love working with students and finding ways to meet their specific learning needs. I feel that I have the experience and the knowledge necessary to help all of the students within my realm of influence succeed. I'm currently working towards my MA in Teaching English as a Second Language, and I hope that degree will enhance my ability to meet the needs of the students here at Crescent Harbor Elementary School.
I look forward to meeting you all. Let's dive into reading!
