I am so happy to be starting my 3rd year as a 1st grade teacher at McDermoth. Somethings about me and my experience in educational setting over about 10 years. I graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature. After graduation I worked for Clover Park School District in Lakewood as a para for about 3 years. Then I decided I wanted to go abroad for one year to teach English to students ages 4-70+ years old. After that year, my call back to Tacoma had me continue my work with Clover Park as a para, and teaching at Sylvan. While working two jobs, I decided I wasn't done with my education and went back to received my Masters in Education from City University of Seattle. The last part of my program, I became a substitute teacher throughout Clover Park and continued with my other job. After about 3 months, I got the itch to return overseas for 1 year to teach at a private school. Were I taught eighteen 4-5 year olds. When returning I continued to be a substitiute teacher. My husband and I moved from Washington to Texas for a year were I taught pre-k5 year olds. After that year was up we once again, moved back to Washington. Were I got hired with the Federal Way School District. I was able to teach kindergarten and 2nd. After my two years in Federal Way, I was able to come work at McDermoth for the last 2 starting my 3rd year here.
Somethings about me I would like to share with you are. I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. I am married and we have a beautiful daughter named Jordyn. She is very sassy and strong willed. We have a dog named Bailey that we love to pieces. Things that I love to do but don't usually have time for now are travelilng especially to see family overseas, baking, reading, sleeping and spending time with my family.
