A little about me: I’m going into my 12th year of teaching this year. My first five years I had an amazing experience teaching Kindergarten at an elementary school on the South side of Chicago, which I grew up a couple miles away from. I moved to Portland right after getting married to my amazing husband (who is also a teacher!) in 2014 after knowing that constantly driving 3 hours each way to get to a mountain to go snowboarding every weekend was not going to be a sustainable lifestyle for us. We love to be outdoors either riding at Timberline in the winter or camping as much as possible in the summer. We also love traveling and can’t wait to get back at it! Right now, though, we are loving all the quality time we are getting with our beautiful, amazing, spitfire daughter, Brighton, who turns one at the end of September. 

I feel so lucky to have a place at Woodmere, as it truly is such a gem of a school in terms of the staff, students,  and families. I absolutely feel that Woodmere is my forever school and have loved being part of such an amazing community.
