I have been teaching since 1996. My first year I was a substitute teacher and I visited every school in Marysville. My first full time job was at Sunnyside Elementary teaching second grade. During my 14 years at Sunnyside, I taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 1st grade, library, and back to 3rd grade. In 2011, I transferred to Quil Ceda Tulalip and taught 5th grade for 3 years. This is my second year at Allen Creek. My husband and I live in Everett, we have two children, a Golden Retriever and two cats. I like to read, travel, garden, watch movies, listen to music, and spend time with my family.
