    Hello, and welcome to 7th grade English at Miller Junior High! This is my first year at Miller, and I'm exceptionally excited for the 2017-2018 school year. I'll give you a bit of my background and experience, so you can see who I am as a teacher, and as a person. I graduated from Montesano High School in 2002, and left for boot camp two months later. I served in the United States Navy for four years as an Aviation Electrician, and was stationed in Pensacola, San Diego, and Oak Harbor. After leaving the service, I enrolled at Grays Harbor College and earned my Associate of Arts Degree in 2008. I then went to Eastern Washington University to pursue my teaching degree. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Education in 2011, and soon after began substitute teaching in the Lake Washington School District, in the Seattle area. I accepted a position at Harbor High School, here in the Aberdeen School District, in 2013, and taught Social Studies and Physical Education there for four years. I was also an advisor at the school, and am proud of how many students I helped make it to graduation, who might not have been able to achieve that goal at another, more traditional school. This is my first year teaching English since I student taught at Bowdish Middle School in Spokane Valley, but I am anxious for the new challenge! In my time outside of teaching I enjoy backpacking, playing almost every sport, playing fantasy football, reading, traveling, landscaping, and spending time with my family and friends. I hope you are ready for what should be an amazing school year!
