Welcome to Kindergarten at East Ridge Elementary! This is my sixth year teaching at East Ridge. I have been teaching for 12 years and have taught both half day and full day kindergarten, 2nd and 3rd grade. Before coming to the Northshore School District, I worked for 6 years in the Snohomish School District. Teaching is my second career. I previously worked in politics but always knew that I really wanted to be a teacher. I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Washington State University. Go Cougs!
I live within the attendance boundaries of East Ridge. I have one daughter that is in 4th grade at East Ridge. I have another daughter that is in 6th grade at Timbercrest Middle School. My husband and I were both born and raised locally and are very thankful that we can raise our children here. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, watching football and traveling.
