About the teacher
I LOVE teaching ! This is year 26 for me and I am still having a blast. I have been teaching 4th and 5th graders for most of my years. I teach in an amazing program where parents work in the classroom every week. We are a public school with super awesomeinvolved parents. I am super lucky to work with another teacher and we team teach STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) everyday to both of our classes.
2017-18 is the first year that I have tried blogging with my students. In my district we have recently incorporated 1 to 1 devices for 3rd-12th graders. It is awesome and I would never be able to switch back. We have been getting great training with Eduro training and I am learning as we give it a go. My students love using and creating with the chrome books.
For fun I love to go boating, camping and traveling with my family. My favorite island in the San Juan Islands is Sucia. The summers here in the Pacific Northwest are absolutely gorgeous. I have 3 amazing children. My oldest Nick is going to school to learn to be a middle school band conductor. My middle daughter, Maggie is at college learning to be a high school math teacher. My youngest, Nate, is a senior and he is looking forward to earning a bio chemistry degree at college soon.
