Greetings to Families of Team Joy,
I'm looking forward to working with your 5th grade child this year. Please note I'm in the building Monday through Friday from 7:30am until 5:00pm. Do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns. To reach me you can email me at school, at home, call the school 503.916.6363 x 78113 or call my cell 503.329.3456.
A little about me: I grew up in Seattle and attended Western Washington University where I graduated with a business degree. I spent several years working in hi-tech and during that time got my Masters in Education from Seattle University. In 1994 I moved to Portland. I spent several years at home raising my sons who are now 14 and 16 years old and attend Madison High School. I started my teaching career at Marysville and have taught technology, 4th and and 5th grades (my favorite!). I love to travel and meet new people, I have two miniature schnauzer dogs, Max and Otto, and I spend a great deal of my free time reading books and watching movies.

The students in our class use Edmodo, a secured social learning network to share news and ask homework questions and of each other. Our group code is 6mb7q7.
