About Me...

Raised in a suburb of Boston, MA, I graduated from Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) in 1988 with my BA, began teaching in 1989 in northern Virginia, then received my Masters of Education from University of Virginia in 1993.

I arrived in Poulsbo in 1999 after teaching in private schools on the east coast, in Bellingham, WA and at an international school in Lusaka, Zambia.  My career has focused mainly on 4th -9th grade and includes time at Kingston Junior High, Pearson El., and now PMS.  Additionally, I earned my National Board Certificate in Mathematics in 2002 and have provided various forms of professional development and support to K-12 teachers in our area.

My son, who is entering 7th grade, and my daughter, who is entering 6th  grade, keep me busy outside of school.  We enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, biking, and traveling.

At the heart of my teaching is my belief that all math students can feel successful:  I aim to increase not just my students’ knowledge of mathematics, but also each student’s confidence and enjoyment of math.

Here’s to a new school year!
