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 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 reading and literacy. I came to work in Index in January of 2006.  I began teaching preschool and kindergarten in the mornings and various subjects to the second through eighth grades in the afternoons, after two years I added first grade to the class as well. With more recent changes I am now teaching Kindergarten through Third Grade.
