AJ West Elementary
Welcome to 1st Grade!! I am really looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year. This will be my first year as a 1st grade teacher, but my teaching partners and I have been working hard over the summer to coordinate our schedules, curriculum maps, and subject content so all of our 1st graders will have a similar experience. This is my third year at AJ West, and I am so excited to be working with the 1st grade team. I spent most of my student teaching experience at West so I have been involved with this wonderful family and community for many years.
I recently completed my Masters in Teaching from City University of Seattle, and I have my Bachelor of Arts degree in Family and Consumer Studies (specializing in Interior Design) from Central Washington University.
I was born and raised in Grays Harbor, but spent a number of years living around the Country as a Flight Attendant for American Airlines. I moved back to Hoquiam in 2007, where I live with my husband and my son.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
