About Me
Welcome to 1st grade!

meI moved to Astoria last year and love being back in a small, coastal community. I grew up in the redwoods of the Santa Cruz mountains in California. Graduating from the University of Portland in 2010 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education, a reading endorsement, and my French minor I became a substitute teacher in Beaverton, Oregon. 

Teaching runs in my family with my mom, Karen, being a teacher librarian in California and my sister, Danielle, starting her first year as a political science professor at Sacremento State. My dad, Steve, has given me my strong work ethic as well as made me a 49er faithful fan. 

My boyfriend, Jay, is the sous chef at Baked Alaska and spoils me with amazing home cooked meals, as often as possible. Watterson, my puppy, is the newest addition to my family, and I love walking with him and getting lots of puppy love. 

I have loved becoming a part of this community and look forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
