White Salmon Valley School District 1984-2016

I have been with the White Salmon Valley School District for the past 32 years and consider it my home. I have taught second, third, and fourth grade throughout my teaching life. Teaching is my passion and I love watching my students grow and learn.


The White Salmon area has been my home since 1984. I have lived in Underwood, Husum, and White Salmon. I have 3 children who have all gone through our three, now 4 schools. All three have had wonderful experiences in our schools and beyond. Two have moved back to our community to raise their children. I have 10 grandchildren ranging in ages from 16 to 2. I love spending time with them.  Our activites range from playing with trucks and ponies, to teaching them how to drive! I love to ride bikes and have been riding since I was 5 years old. I also love to knit and sew. You can see all my children wearing my beautiful creations!

 I look forward to the first day of school just as much as your children do. I am nervous, excited, scared, and so happy to see all my friends again. I love what I do, and I am so fortunate to be able to touch so many lives and have their lives touch me.
