    Professional Biography
     I knew very early on that I wanted to be a teacher, I come from a long line of teacher! However, it took me awhile before I started my teaching career in 2010. Prior to earning my MAT in Elementary and Middle School from Willamette University, I spent a few years working as a paraprofessional with Special Education students in the Portland, Oregon area. I also spent two years serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer, where I did everything from trail work and building houses to taxes in inner-city Chicago.
    I am so excited to be starting my second year at Peter G (third with the Tumwater School District). Prior to teaching here, I taught 5th grade and junior high and high school science in eastern Oregon.
