Greetings to Families of Team Joy,
I'm looking forward to working with your 5th grade child this year. This year will be a little different than most with us starting remotely. I will be in touch regularly and encourage you to do so as well. Feel free to email me, text or call any time.
A little about me: I grew up in Seattle and attended Western Washington University where I graduated with a business degree. I spent several years working in hi-tech and during that time got my Masters in Education from Seattle University. In 1994 I moved to Northeast Portland were I still live with my husband, Ben. I spent several years at home raising my sons who are now 21 and 23 years old. I started my teaching career at Marysville and have taught technology, 4th grade and 5th grade. I absolutly love teaching and consider myself lucky to have this career and to work with these kids. When not teaching I love to travel, meet new people, read, watch movies and hang with my friends.
