I am a secondary certified, middle-level 7th grade teacher in Shelton. It is a rural community with a diverse population. I have taught high school and middle school for over a decade. I have my M.Ed. and certifications in ELA, ELL, Drama, and Middle Level Humanities. Just recently, I took the WEST-E to get my "highly qualified" rep for teaching WA History. After moving to the Northwest in my childhood, I could not imagine living in a more beautiful place (though some more sunshine might be nice), and I am really enjoying teaching the history.
In my non-teacher consumed hours I love to spend time with my husband and son, play board games, sew/craft/quilt, and read (I DO teach ELA). I aspire to be more into fitness and outdoors more often, though I find a comfy chair and a good book/movie mightily appealing.
