Welcome to the new school year kindergartners! This is my fourth year at Atlas and my second year teaching kindergarten. I graduated with my social work degree in 2013 from Eastern Washington University and worked as a social worker before finding my way to teaching. I completed my teacher certification in 2021. Teaching has become one of my passions. In particular, I enjoy teaching phonics, reading, and writing. Uniquely, I am able to use my social work background in the classroom daily. When I am not teaching, I enjoy knitting and crocheting, the outdoors, and spending time with family.
