Nice to Meet You!

This is my tenth year at Marshall Middle School and I am thrilled to be here!  I love middle school, and I am passionate about social studies/history, so I know we will all be having fun learning together.

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Scott, for 34 years. We have 3 children. Our oldest is Amanda, who has her own tutoring business in Kansas City, MO and will be pursuing a masters in Occupational Therapy. Our middle child is Shelly, holds bachelor's and master's degrees in English and is returning to school to pursue a masters in speech pathology at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Go Ducks! Our youngest is Michael, graduated from Oregon Tech as a mechanical engineer and is now working for Solar Turbines. We have a 10-year old Lab-Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, named Buddy.

I have a Bachelor's in social science from Chapman University, and a Master's in education, with an emphasis in teaching, from Azusa Pacific University. I love to learn and am constantly taking classes and looking for opportunities to learn more.
 
I am passionate about travel and have been fortunate enough to visit many places in the world that are in our unit of study.
I also love to read, write and play pickleball. 

I love Marshall and look forward to working with you to ensure that your student has a positive 7th-grade experience.
