I am thrilled to continue working with 2nd graders! This is my 24th year teaching. I have worked with children at each level from 2nd through the 8th grade. I earned my BA in Elementary Education from WSU; followed by my MS in Math/Science Education from The University of Tulsa. 

Children are naturally curious. As a teacher, my goal is to encourage and facilitate this proclivity. The real joy for me comes as I watch my students explore their world and then make connections.This process involves allowing children to make choices and then experience the logical consequences of their choices. All children learn in different ways and are uniquely gifted. Learning is an adventure that we will take together!
