Hello!  I am the Genesee Elementary 4th grade teacher, as well as the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade math teacher. I have been part of the Genesee Elementary staff since 2011.  In addition to teacing 4th grade, I have also taught preschool and 2nd grade in Genesee.  I love teaching math because of the opportunity it provides everyone to share their thinking and how sharing our thinking inspires new connections and understandings.  As a life-long learner, I actively seek out information about human development and brain research related to education as frequently as possible.  As a professional, I continually seek ways to make my practices more effective and efficient. 

I currently live in Genesee with my husband, Jake.  We have two daughters, Kyra and Mia.  Outside of school, I enjoy building and creating in a variety of forms.  I also enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful Northwest by hiking in the summer, snowboarding in the winter.
