It is an educator's job to help students excel where they find their passion, and thrive in all other areas. All students, children especially, do best in a warm, inviting environment where they feel engaged and excited to participate. This is the environment I always aim to provide.
I have a Bachelor's in English Literature (with an education endorsement) from Western Washington University, as well as a Master's in Public Affairs from Washington State University.
I enjoy reading and writing in just about every form, and I truly love teaching. I have taught and tutored students of all ages and I take great pride in helping people form goals and achieve them.
