Middle School, High School

I live on Whidbey Island in the upper NW corner of Washington, near Canada. I have a 19-year-old daughter who graduated high school in June 2022. I enjoy reading, writing, crafting, growing succulents, camping, and hanging out with our dog and cats. Together we love watching ice hockey and traveling. I have been a life-long learner since I was born; my parents were both educators. Education has changed greatly in the past few decades and has adjusted to uncertain times. As a teacher, it's important for me to help students learn to be independent learners, ask questions, and stoke their curiosity. As a tutor, my goal is to provide resources to help students solve their problem and reinforce the skills necessary to successfully engage and participate in class. When people ask me why I am a teacher or how I can be a teacher, my response is always the same: I genuinely enjoy spending time with kids. For me, it is imperative to teach the who before I teach the what.
