I am an interventionist, ELL teacher and teacher coach in the Auburn School District. Auburn is a suburb of Seattle. The school district here serves a diverse population of students and families. I have taught in this district for ten years, in 2nd grade, 4th grade, and now ELL. In addition to being an academic teacher, I advise my building's ASB, mentor student teachers and coordinate an ELL grant in my building. I have a huge passion for connecting with the families I am honored to serve. I love my job and the kids I serve.
I grew up here in Western Washington, wanting to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. As the oldest child in my family, I had plenty of opportunities to "practice" teaching my younger siblings. I enjoyed this. They may not have. :) When I'm not working, I enjoy outdoor activities with my husband and our two Australian Shepherds (whom are far too spoiled for their own good!). I also love spending time with my family, being an auntie (to the cutest kids ever to grace this planet!), hosting dinner parties for friends, crafting, taking photographs and shopping.
