Welcome to middle school English Language Arts! I am so looking forward to getting to know you and building our learning community together.
Here's a little about me in the meantime:
This school year will be my fourteenth as a teacher. (Time flies when you have the most interesting job on the planet!) Before moving to Canyon Park, I taught elementary students at Woodin Elementary and in Seattle Public Schools. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to "move up" to middle school with our sixth and seventh graders three years ago, and to be part of the team that created Canyon Park's first middle school experience. Add to that the opportunity to focus on one of my instructional passions--uncovering with students the power that resides in language and literature--and I'm all in!
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons, exploring new places and books, and being outdoors.
