About Me

I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska for my childhood. I loved the snowy days and when I was younger I got used to the cold. My family moved from Washington to Alaska when I was 2 years old for my dads job, my two sisters were born there, and then in 2007 we moved back to Washington (Gig Harbor) to be close to family members who were getting much older. In Alaska I went to a smaller K-12 school where my mom taught, so moving during middle school was a hard change for me. We had moved back here after the school year had already started and so I decided to do home school for a few years, when it came to my freshmen year of high school I went to the closest public school. It was great to feel so ready to tackle classes because I had grown in being independent so much from being home schooled and managing my own time to get things done quickly. I later then went on to do running start at Tacoma Community College and graduated high school with my Associates Degree. Ever since I was a freshmen in high school I knew I wanted to become a teacher, so all through community college I focused on taking electives and classes that related to an elementary teaching degree. For college I attended Western Washington University and got my degree in Elementary Education (K-8) with endorsements in Reading and English Language Learners. 

I am so blessed to have joined Talbot Hill Elementary this school year! It is becoming a close knit, caring, compassionate, grace-filled, and fun environment to be in. I am already feeling incredibly blessed by your kids this school year. I am looking forward to building relationships with these students and with you, the parents, throughout this 2017-2018 school year. Thank you for partnering with me in supporting your students and giving them the best learning opportunities.
