I began teaching in Oak Harbor in 1999. It was a pleasure to serve as the Title I / LAP Teacher and librarian at Clover Valley Elementary. Then, I moved to Hillcrest Elementary in 2006 where I have been a third grade teacher and currently I am the librarian. I earned a BA in Early Childhood Education from Central Washington University and a Master's Degree in School Library and Information Technology from Mansfield University.My husband and I have two wonderful daughters and a cat who thinks he is the king of the house. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, baking, whale watching and reading.
