Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 6th Grade English and Social Studies!
I'm excited to be joining the Miller team and to be part of the historic addition of 6th grade to Miller! This is my second year in the Harbor. My family moved to the Harbor from Battle Ground, WA where I taught in grades K, 1, 2, and 5. I earned my bachelor's degree in K-8 education from Eastern Washington University in 2007. Recently, I acheived a Masters from Washington State University-Vancouver in Educational Leadership. In addition to teaching, my professional interests lie in instruction and the improvement of student learning.
This year I also get to teach a section of PE. As someone who grew up playing sports in a cowfield and tries to remain active at home, I'm excited to have a great excuse to be active during the school day! I greatly enjoy the outdoors (thus the draw to the Harbor!) and when we aren't working and going to school, my family is usually found bike riding, hiking, beachcombing, or playing soccer or baseball at the park!
I look forward to working with this year's 6th grade families!
