Greetings to Families of Team Joy,

Do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns. To reach me you can email me at school, at home, call the school 503.916.6363 x 78113 or call my cell 503.329.3456.
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 20 and 22 years old. My 20 year old is senior at the University of Oregon studying business and adversiting. My 22 year old just graduated University of Oregon School of Design with an art degree. I am super proud of them both. 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.
