I have been teaching for 7 years. This is my first year at Parkdale and I am so excited to teach first grade! My wonderful husband and I have four children, Maddie, Mason, Zeke and Josiah. We also have a great dog, Jessie.  Maddie attends Portland State University where she studies biology. Mason is a freshman at Portland State University, he is hoping to study business and economics.  Zeke and Josiah live in England, but they come over every year for the summer!  We love our diverse and wonderful family!  When not teaching I love spending time with my family camping, traveling and just having fun together.  I also enjoy skiing, hiking, biking and running!  I am so excited to be your teacher this year! We will learn lots and have so much fun doing great things!
