I have been teaching in Bethel for 29 years! I grew up in Eugene and attended Bethel Schools. After high school I received my degree from the University of Oregon. I began my teaching career at Irving in 1989, spent six incredible years at Fairfield, and now I am back at Irving.
I met my husband, Dave, when we were students at Willamette High School. He now works for SAIF corporation. We have two children, Caitlin and Andrew. Caitlin is a graduate of Western Oregon University with a chemistry major. She currently is working as a CNA and is making plans for graduate school. Andrew graduated from the University of Oregon in June, majoring in math with a economics minor. He is the techie of our family. Everyone relies on him to help us with our computers! He is a video game master and loves to play on his Xbox.
When I’m not teaching I love to hang out with my family, run, do yoga, read, and yes, watch TV. I also enjoy browsing Pinterest for fun, new ideas for the classroom. I love being an Irving Tiger!
