Math Specialist K-5 & After School Tutoring Coordinator

I am very excited to be a part of the OLG community!  I have over 30 years experience in teaching math in grades K-8, as well as several years administrative experience. My most recent school was Sacred Heart in Bellevue, and I previously taught at Lakeside Middle School and St. Monica School of Mercer Island.

My husband and I moved our family to West Seattle a few years ago, and my goal has been to teach and get more involved in a Catholic community closer to home.  I was warmly welcomed as a volunteer in the classrooms last year and now, I am thrilled to be working with the wonderful students and staff at OLG!

Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family near and far, travel, garden, enjoy summer concert outdoors, walk Alki, go to the theater, and enjoy the Mariners and Seahawks! I volunteer at the West Seattle Food bank which has opened my eyes to the needs of our community.

My schedule is set to work with students in small groups to support their growth.  These groups will be flexible and changing throughout the year.  As I work with my students, I strive to inspire them to be confident learners with a growth mindset. Math is everywhere, and we will explore it together with joy and perseverance!
