Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!
I am beyond excited to start my sixth year at East Olympia Elementary. My goal is to contribute to our wonderful community by knowing all students by name, strength and need. This was a motto from a district I worked in previously, and it has stuck with me as a way of doing business. It's my job to be visible throughout the school, and to ensure that ALL students know my name, location of my office and how to access me. Some of the main services I provide are classroom lessons using SecondStep curricuum, small group counseling with specific skill building activities, and individualized support. I'm an active participant in our SIT (student intervention team) meetings and involved in PBIS (positive behavior intervention and supports) as well. I'm the 504 lead in our building, and work closely with the Specialist team to support school-wide events and activities. Our focus is on supporting the whole child, academic, social emotional and behavioral needs.
I look foward to working with your family this school year! Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns that arise.
