    I have been teaching at A.J. West since December of 1990. I grew up mostly in Tacoma. I went to a community college rather than a trade school because they had a basketball team. This one decision has made all the difference in my life. You never know how some random decision, so small, can be so important. After receiving my associate's degree, I worked and then went to Western Washington University. I majored in Parks and Recreation. I worked in fitness centers, a health club, and for BOY'S & GIRL'S clubs. I went back to school and earned my teaching certificate at Saint Martin's University.
    Of all the schools I have worked (this is the only one), I truly believe West is Best. 
    I have loved working with students as they grow up and try to earn more independence.
    My classroom expectation is “DO THE RIGHT THING”.
    If you have the integrity to Do The Right Thing even when you are not being watched, you will have the most important thing in life, the trust of those around you.
    My class has always been known for working hard and playing hard.
    I am so glad you are in my class!!!
