I'm working on correcting the picture position.





Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 school year and to room 1!  I am truly honored to be your child’s kindergarten teacher.  My passion for teaching is in preparing our youngest learners for success in school!  Each day will be filled with challenges, exploration, problem-solving, sharing, teamwork and “hands-on” learning!  My daily support and guidance will help all learners tap into their growth mindset and master new concepts and skills in a meaningful, memorable and fun way.

This is my thirteenth year teaching kindergarten in Shoreline where my husband and I also reside. We are parents to two sons in college that also attended Highland Terrace.  My educational background (below) and years of teaching kindergarten have prepared me well to lead students through our Common Core curricula and beyond.  I'm confident each child will do their best each day, strive to meet their learning goals and grow in a rainbow of ways! 

  • Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Western Washington University
  • Master in Teaching from City University
  • Professional Certification from Seattle Pacific University

I look forward to building a partnership with each family to ensure every child reaches their fullest potential.  Here’s to a fantastic kindergarten year together.
