I have lived in Washington my whole life, and I have been teaching in Kettle Falls for the last 4 years. Before entering the teaching profession, I taught ballet and worked as a classroom assistant at the Kettle Falls High School. I am married and have two energetic girls. Although I have always been interested in all school subjects, the arts--music, dance, theater, and visual art--are my passion and what I spend much of my free time pursuing. However, I also find time for snowboarding, riding horses, and love to try new activities.
In my classroom all students will create quality art products. Infused into every occupation and situation, I see creativity as a skill used throughout one’s entire life , and I believe all students have the power to create quality achieved through time and attention. I expect students to use the time I give to complete their products modeling CREW (caring, responsibility, effort, and wisdom) as they work with art supplies as individuals and with other students. Also, WARNING random entertainment may occur. I am known for occasional exaggerated moments of acting accompanied by singing and/or dancing.
