    Position:  English Language Arts 8; Leadership  
    Education/Teaching Background: A graduate from St. Martin’s University, I have a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Middle Level Humanities (English Language Arts and History), Secondary English, and am Nationally Board Certified in English Language Arts for Young Adults ages14-18+. I joined the Tumwater family from University Place school district. I enjoy advising students who want to become involved in influencing their school community service through Leadership class. 

    Beyond my classroom, I have a wonderful family that includes five grown children and a terrific husband and pooch that spend time at our home on Summit Lake near west Olympia.  Teaching is my passion and student’s life-long learning is my ultimate goal.  I hope to inspire students every day to delve into rich literature, develop their ability to create good writing, and to explore their own power to contribute to the world!
