I am a native of White Salmon.  This is my 28th year of teaching!  The first 15 years I taught full time, then started job sharing when I had my first child.  I have always loved working with kids and feel lucky to be able to do it as a career!  I am married and have two daughters.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading, skiing, playing guitar and doing yoga.
