This is my 18th year in the Aberdeen School District. I taught my first five at Robert Gray and the last twelve at Miller. I earned my BA at Western Washington University and my MA through Lesley University. Prior to teaching, I worked at the Weyco Mill in Raymond, owned a window washing service in Mt. View, California, and served a tour in the USMC. Nothing seemed fulfilling until I taught. Also, I've coached high school and jr. high football, girl's soccer and softball, Special Olympics, and kid wrestling. I welcome you to an exciting year at MJH, and I look forward to guiding your growth as a reader and writer.
