It has been my privilege to teach at Echo Lake Elementary since 1982! This school and community mean so much to me and have been a big part of my life. Many of my years here have been spent teaching second grade, and for fourteen years, I job-shared with Mrs. Alloway. This is my eleventh year teaching third grade, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Third graders are awesome!
Respect and responsibility rule in Room 60. We follow Ms. Frizzle’s motto: “Take chances! Make mistakes! Learn!” We support and help each other as we learn together.
I grew up in southern California and graduated from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo. After moving to Washington, I completed my 5th year at the University of Washington and then completed post-graduate work at Seattle Pacific University. I enjoy time spent with my family and my cat! I love being at the beach, walking, swimming, and most of all, reading.
