Hi, this will be my ninth year at Briarcrest. I've taught 5th grade, Highly Capable 4th grade, and 6th grade. I'm originally from Wisconsin, but have lived in the Seattle area since 1990. I really enjoy social studies and if you are in my class, you probably will too :). I received a B.A. in History from UW and a Master in Teaching from Seattle University.
I have two sons, ten year old Peter and Jake who is seven. When I'm not chasing Peter or Jake, or they are not chasing me, my interests are reading and learning about the world, playing board games, riding my Vespa, coaching wrestling with my boys, and closely following Husky football.
