I love being a part of this remarkable community of students, families, and educators. Third graders ROCK; I love their spunk and excitement for learning. I am energized by the growth that third grade brings for students socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Before coming to Meridian I taught in Jeffco where I also taught 3rd grade; prior to being a classroom teacher I was a Digital Teacher Librarian in Seattle School District and it was there that I became passionate about guiding students in developing 21st century skills including creative problem solving and collaboration. I enjoy building strong relationships with students and families and I am looking forward to creating lasting connections throughout the Meridian community.
