Before teaching full time, I've also spent time running after school programs part time at the Elementary and Junior High level. However, my first teaching experience was teaching English to adults in Haiti for one year following my graduation from Washington State University in 2008. Before deciding to pursue a career in education, I worked one year with the Washington State Reading Corps in the district I now currently teach in, and realized my passion.
I've also learned the importance of life-long learning, and have a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with an area of study on Elementary Literacy.
