I put my degree in biology from Hood College to good use for seven years at the National Cancer Institute before leaving to raise children full time when my first was born. Now I have three, all students at CCM. I have absolutely fallen in love with the Montessori Method and have decided, despite my deep love for biological research, to change careers. I began the Elementary I Montessori program at Barrie this summer and cannot wait to start sharing the amazing things I have learned. I also plan to begin a Masters of Art in Education in the fall through Trinity University.
I love spending time with my family, especially in nature. I recently completed the course work for the Master Naturalist Program. I also love to garden and cook. I especially love to cook Indian with things from my own garden. I am an Instructional Assistant in Upper Elementary and love every minute of it.
