I have been teaching at Miller Junior High School for 33 years. I obtained my BA in mathematics from Whitworth University in Spokane, and a MA in education from The University of Portland. My hobbies include hiking, reading, playing my bassoon, attending musicals, and playing with my 5 birds. I now enjoy keeping Mason and Leaf Cutter Bees. I also love to travel!! I enjoy sharing this love of traveling with students through my WWET club Saturday trips and Washington DC and NYC trips the last full week of June of alternating years.
