Welcome to the Resource Room!

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!!!  

I am excited to be retuning to Syre for another amazing year!  I am a veteran teacher who has worked in the world of education for the last 16 years.  Before joining the Shoreline family, I worked for a private school for students with learning disabilities, both teaching and being the assessment coordinator. I then worked for an educational technology company for 8 years conducting usability studies, collaborating with the instructional design team and providing teacher training and support. My earliest teaching experiences were all around early childhood education.  I am thrilled to be working side by side with such amazing educators and incredible students at Syre. 

I have a Master's degree in Special Education from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) and a BA in Psychology from Eastern Connecticut State University.  In August 2015 I finished all of the course work to take the exam to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).   I live in Mountlake Terrace with my husband Adam and our two sons, AJ and Avery.  AJ is a 1st grader, and Avery is at preschool (the 3 year old room).   In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my boys play, scrapbooking, reading, and swimming.
