 Welcome to our U.S. History website. I am thrilled to be teaching U.S. History this year. I have a passion for history that was inspired by my high school U.S. History teacher at Cascade High School - Mr. Therrell. I majored in history at the University of Washington and then earned a Master of Education in Secondary Social Studies from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. My goal is to make the course relevant, interesting, and engaging. When I tell people that I am a history teacher, many adults reply "I hated history class." I am 100% committed to making sure all my students feel the opposite and develop a lifelong love of history and develop the skills needed to be an informed and active participant in our democracy. Looking forward to jumping into U.S. History with you all this year!

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy time outdoors with my husband and three children - especially boating, hiking, and skiing. Edison is starting kindergarten at LFP Elementary this year and we so happy we moved to LFP this year!

Looking forward to a wonderful, enriching year in U.S. History together!
