Welcome to 6th grade at Prairie Mountain. I’d love for you to know a bit about me. This is my 29th year of teaching. I graduated from the University of Washington, but living in Eugene for more than 17 years now has made me an avid Duck fan.
I’ve taught 2nd-8th grade and am totally honest when I say that 6th grade is my absolute favorite. I love teaching math, but a secret about me is that I wasn’t a great math student when in school. I stuck it out, however, didn’t give up, and feel now I have many tricks and techniques to share with students to help them in the areas I struggled with. I love teaching science, too, and feel extra successful when students leave my classes committed to being good environmental stewards.
In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and our two daughters. I am a huge sports fan… going all the UO Football and Women Basketball games. Both my daughters played soccer and my younger one still plays basketball, so I am a real “soccer mom.” That alone keeps me pretty busy, but I also love to hike, garden and of course, I love to READ!!!.
I invite parents and families to visit, email or call. Parent volunteers are needed throughout the year for field trips and class activities. Schools are always a better place when we have a diversity of adults working together in the best interest of our students. I look forward to seeing you soon!
