My husband and I are originally from Yakima, WA. I moved to the Northwest to attend Trinity Western University, where I graduated with a degree in Psychology/Human Services. I later participated in the K-8 Post-Baccalaureate Program at Western Washington University where I received my teaching certificate.
I have had a variety of opportunities to work with children who have a wide range of abilities, and come from different cultural backgrounds. Some of my experiences involve Young Life, the inner city of Philadelphia, Catholic Community Services, and the Life Skills program at Meridian High School. After teaching Fifth Grade in the Mount Vernon School District, I took some time off work to stay home and raise our two children.
Our family joined Evergreen Christian School in 2006. After teaching Kindergarten and 2nd grade at Evergreen, I joined the BCS community as part of the reunification in 2019.
My favorite thing about working with the primary students is how excited they get about learning and their willingness to get silly with me. I love the wide-eyed expressions, big smiles, and being a part of their discoveries. I have felt truly blessed to teach in communities where I get to invite, nurture, and empower students in not only their learning, but their relationship with Jesus.
