ClassesLibrary and Art
EducationBA in English (with college honors, cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) at the University of Washington; teaching credentials also through the UW with endorsements 4-12 English, 4-12 Language Arts, and K-12 Art.
ExperienceMy career shows a steady progression to teaching younger and younger students; this has been beneficial to my students because I understand what will be required of them at the next stages of their education. While teaching Freshman Composition at the UW, I realized that teaching was my love, so I switched from the graduate English program to the Education Program. For 11 years I taught English at Eastside Catholic High School and co-created the Seattle University Matteo Ricci class there. For my last two years I was also the Academic Dean at Eastside, but what I really wanted to do was teach art. I took a year off and volunteered in art classrooms in several schools (I already had my art teaching credential), When I returned to teaching, I did so at the Jewish Day School for nine years--teaching 8th grade Humanities and then Pre-K thru MS art. I've taught art at St. Anne since 2008--originally part time here and part time at JDS and then part time at St. Madeleine Sophie. In 2013 I moved to St. Anne full time by becoming the Librarian as well as the Art Teacher.
Passions/InterestsI love making art! On my own I love to draw and paint en plein aire (outside) or to be awake in the middle of the night sewing hats or watercoloring at the dining room table. I fashion sculptures out of objects I find on walks around the neighborhood, at the beach, or in the woods. I look and look and look--enjoying textures, colors, shapes, light, and wondering at the amazing composition of God's art and in the work of my fellows humans. I read deeply and broadly. These days poetry and non-fiction stimulate my mind and heart most, but I also delight in finding new books (or reading classics I somehow missed) for children and young adults. I must go to the ocean every so often to let the sounds, smells, and sights of that enormous water get me back into a proper relation with the world. Oh, and children. I am unendingly passionate about the intellectual, artistic, and spiritual growth of children.

ExperienceThis is my first year teaching! I completed a full-time, year long internship at St. Joe's last year. In my professional career, I worked in IT Project Management.
Passions/InterestsI have always wanted to teach middle school math and science. My own middle school teachers had a huge impact on me, so I've been dreaming of this opportunity for most of my life.

I enrolled at SPU and spent a year at St. Joe's as a 7th and 8th grade math teacher. I am thrilled to be at St. Anne's and look forward to many years serving the student community here!
EducationBA Theatre Production and BA Theatre Performance, Seattle Pacific University
ExperienceThough this is my first year teaching, it’s certainly not my first rodeo! I’ve spent most of my life either helping my mom with church skits, leading Vacation Bible Schools, working as a camp counselor, or directing children’s theatre.
Passions/InterestsSince graduating in 2019, I’ve been working full-time in the arts-- from being in the box office at the 5th Avenue Theatre to being the Company Manager for the Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan Society! I’m a jack-of-all-trades, though I’m most commonly “booked” for stage management, acting, carpentry, and scenic painting. Music has been a huge part of my life (and education) since I was a small child. I have sung in many choirs, been in multiple bands (both woodwind and rock), and have always enjoyed learning new instruments. I listen to all genres of music, and love getting new recommendations! When I'm not working, you'll often find me kayaking in a state park, developing new recipes, or picking up (another) creative hobby!"
