BIO:I was born and raised in the Snoqualmie Valley. I graduated from Mount Si High School in 1990, Bellevue College in 1992, WWU in 1997, and City University in 2003. My certifications include: Special Education, K-12; Reading, K-12; Elementary Education, K-8; and Psychology, 4-12. I received my Master's Degree in the area of Reading Literacy. I have also completed all levels in the Wired for Reading program, plus certification as a dyslexia specialist through the Dyslexia Training Institute of San Diego. All this coursework, as well as working locally at Remlinger Farms, the Salish Lodge, the North Bend Outlet Mall, and Huxdotter Coffee, gave me the skills, confidence, and motivation to become the teacher I am today!
I currently live in Fall City with my husband and 2 sons - ages 15 and 16. I love reading, playing the piano, accompanying my church choir, spending time with family, working on my parents' farm in Fall City, and beach combing in Hawaii.
