We always say that we work in the most beautiful place and it’s confirmed every morning when I drive into town.  I don’t think anyone could ask for a better view from their classroom windows!

I am excited to start my 19th year teaching at Index Elementary! I graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and an additional endorsement in reading. I have since received a Master’s Degree in Education, with a focus on reading and literacy. I came to work in Index in January of 2006, teaching preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. With more recent changes I am now teaching Kindergarten through Third Grade.
