Greetings Team Joy,
I'm looking forward to working with you and your 5th grade child this year. I will be in touch regularly and encourage you to do so as well. Feel free to email me or text or call any time using the Remind App.
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 high-tech and during that time got my Masters in Education from Seattle University. In 1994 I moved to Northeast Portland where I still live with my husband, Ben and our dog, Mora. I spent several years at home raising my sons who are now 24 and 26 years old. I started my teaching career at Marysville in 2011 and have taught technology, 4th grade and 5th grades. I absolutely love teaching and consider myself lucky to have a career as an educator working with young scholars. When not teaching I love to travel, read, watch movies and hang with my friends.
