Welcome to 6th grade! This year we will have so much fun! We will become better mathematicians and linguists. We will learn about our local environmental science. We will use Chromebooks as our technology tool and Google apps for education for our projects. We'll also create art...lots of art. And, of course, we'll read, read, and read some more!! But, most importantly, we'll become a great team of learners and help each other to be the best we can be! Go Vikiings!
I have been teaching for 15 years at Robert Gray Elementary. I graduated from Grays Harbor College and Washington State University with my BA and teaching certificate. I earned my Master's from Lesley University. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.
I am married to Pete, and we have two children. My daughter, Jewels, is a graduate of Western Washington University and currently lives and works in Tacoma. My son, John, is a sophomore at Washington State University in the mechanical engineering program. Our family enjoyed camping, bike riding, soccer, and concerts. My husband has a cool hot rod, and we go riding in the summer. And, of course, reading. My family calls me a book nerd. It's not a bad title.
