I recently moved to Hood River from Underwood, WA. I have 2 children attending HRMS, Lily in 8th grade, and Isabella in 7th. My son Ben attends second grade at May st. My husband, Blair, works in Glenwood, WA. This is my 18th year teaching in Hood River County. I began my teaching career at Hood River Middle School. I taught 7th grade language arts, reading, and social studies, and 6th grade self contained. I taught 5th grade here at Westside for 10 years and am now into my second year of teaching 3rd grade. I love teaching at the elementary level and am thrilled to work with lower elementary students this year.
I've traveled to many different countries and lived abroad several times. I lived and worked on Maui, and taught English in Japan.
I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading, biking, hiking, skiing and taking advantage of all the opportunities the beautiful Columbia Gorge has to offer.
