I received my initial certification in Special Education/Elementary Education from Western Washington University. I hold a Montessori Degree from Northwest Montessori school and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction: Reading and Writing from Lesley University. I began my teaching career with a variety of classroom positions and joined the St John faculty in 1990 as a Kindergarten teacher. I later moved to 2nd grade, then to middle school where for the past 10 years I have taught a variety of subjects most currently as 8th grade homeroom and middle school religion teacher. Last year I asked to move to 4th grade, a grade I have never taught before. I am a native Seattleite growing up in the Wedgewood neighborhood and attending OLL and Blanchet high school. I am a wife, mother of 3 adult daughters, and one granddaughter. What I love most about teaching is experiencing the joy that learning brings to my students.
