Welcome to First Grade
I am so excited for this school year and working with all the wonderful first graders and their parents!
I am a cradle Catholic and Washington native, born and raised in Gig Harbor. I attended Western Washington University and graduated with a BaEd Speech Communucations and taught in the public schools grades 1st-3rd for 5 years. For the past 22 years I left teaching in my own classroom and chose to stay home and raise my three sons, ages 22, 19, and 16. My family and I have been members of St.Brendan Church since 2000, and all three of our children graduated from St. Brendan School . Over the past 10 years, I have enjoyed substituting at St. Brendan, so I know many of the children and school routines!
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family. I enjoy running, gardening, hiking, cooking, baking, my prayer time, and going to Mass.
