    Over the past 19 years, I have taught language in many settings (preschool, K-12, community college, and university) both in the U.S. and overseas.  I love learning about people, places, and cultural identity.  My husband and I lived in Armenia for two years, where I taught English and was a teacher trainer for the Peace Corps.  I have also worked for nonprofit organizations in Latin America, spending extended periods in Ecuador, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  I love traveling, and I've been to Spain, England, Eastern Europe, and Kenya, in addition to most of the U.S. states.  I took a few years off of teaching to stay home with my four children. This is my fifth year in the Tumwater School District.
