Math Teacher

This is my second year at Glacier Middle School and I am excited to be a part of the Grizzly Family. My previous experience was teaching 7th & 8th grade math at another local school district.

This is my fourth year teaching. Prior to this I held a position in the corporate   world as an account executive for information technology. I was drawn to  teaching with a strong desire to impact the lives of others in our community. I chose middle school in specific because I believe it is a pivotal time in students lives. I believe that whatever you desire to accomplish is within your reach, as long as you work for it. I believe that every student is a contributing member to our society, and can achieve the best if so motivated.

I have resided in Washington state all my life in the greater Puget Sound area and have travelled to a plethora of different countries.I am married with four children. We are a blended family, me bringing one daughter (12), and my husband bringing three children (Twin girls-17, and one 12 year old boy). I graduated from Central Washington University (Magna Cum Laude) in Kent, WA with a BA in Education and a minor in middle level math and science. I am fist generation college graduate, meaning no one in my immediate family has ever graduated from a four year university. I am currently endorsed to teach both math and science. My hobbies include gardening, hiking, motorcycle riding, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and crafts. I am honored to be a teacher, and do not take lightly my obligation to your students.


Teaching Objective


My mission is to empower students to be self-sufficient and motivated learners.
