I hope you come to love history and politics as much as I do with our time together. I have always been fascinated in the behaviors of human nature and how in so many ways we are so similar yet also so different from each other as well as with people of years ago.
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and went to University of Oregon, where I earned degrees in History and English as well as my Masters degree in Secondary Education. Needless to say, I've always loved social studies and have known I wanted to be a teacher!
I have taught U.S. History and American Government my whole career and simply love it. And I am very excited to be working with a great group for ASB Leadership this year.
Outside the classroom, I enjoy helping other teachers through working with the National Board program and serving as a member of the Washington State Council for Social Studies. I also love to photograph the beautiful landscapes of the Pacific Northwest and train for 10k and 1/2 marathons throughout the year.
