Hello to my students and their families!
Welcome to the 5th grade!  I'm excited about the beginning of a new and fabulous school year.  This year you can look forward to studying the earth, discovering history with famous explorers, tracking the footsteps of our country's founders, introducing yourself to great new characters, and lots of other learning.

About myself...
I have a business degree from CWU and graduated with my Masters in Teaching from CityU in 2008.  This is my second year teaching at Meridian Park and my first year teaching 5th grade.  Before coming to Meridain Park, I taught at Briarcrest Elementary in Shoreline for two years.  I love teaching, love teaching at Meridian Park, and am so happy to be teaching 5th grade this year.

I live in Lake Forest Park with my husband and three kids. 
My twin boys, Ben and Sam, are in the 8th grade at Kellogg Middle School, and my daughter, Angie, is a 5th grader at Briarcrest.  In my free time, I love reading, seeing plays and live music, bike riding, walking, and spending time with friends and family.
