I began teaching in 1993 and I hold a Master's Degree in Classroom Teaching with additional endorsements in Special Education and English as a Second Language. During my teaching career, I have taught in the state of Washington and overseas in Italy for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS). I have been a Classroom Teacher, Middle School Teacher, Special Education Teacher, Language Arts Reading Specialist, English as a Second Language Teacher, Parent Assisted Learning Adviser, Academic Interventionist, District Grade Level Science Leader, as well as a Home-School Mom. (Note: Some school years I held multiple titles.) I have been employed by the North Kitsap School District since 2004 and I am very excited to be at Poulsbo Middle School teaching at the Middle School level again.
I am the wife of a retired sailor and mother of a fantastic 7th grader. I will be celebrating my 27th wedding anniversary in November and was an active duty Navy wife for 18 of those years.
I enjoy gardening, garage "saling," genealogy, animal science and teaching!
