Thanks for visiting my page! There are a few things about me: I am proud to be native Oregonian. My husband and I graduated from the University of Oregon and are huge Duck fans! We added a new member to our family last March; Martin. He is such a happy boy and the joy of our lives. He will come to visit our class several times this year! Some of my favorite foods include cheese and anything spicy! On my spare time I love cooking, reading, watching and playing sports with friends, spending time with loved ones, and traveling!
Something you may not know about me is that my mother is a retired elementary school teacher. As a kid, I saw how she really made a difference in children’s lives, which inspired me to also become a teacher! This is my tenth year teaching, and seventh year here at Willamette. I truly believe that every child can be high achievers and dig deep into learning. Building a compassionate classroom with strong moral character that demonstrates grit and perseverance when learning gets tough is what I strive for everyday. My students are my teachers and my daily inspiration. I love being a teacher.
