Welcome! I am excited for the new year and the chance to work with your child this year! I began my teaching career in San Jose, California and then after several years, moved to Oregon in 2001. Oregon wasn't unknown territory. As an undergraduate, I attended the University of Oregon and then continued on to Portland State where I received my master's degree. Tualatin Elementary has been my "home" ever since then and I am so fortunate to be a part of a such a talented and dedicated staff.
