I have been working with children for over 20 years. I have an 11-year-old daughter and adult son. You can find me giving breaks and helping out in all the class rooms. My family loves to go camping and are huge Seahawk fans!

I have been working with children for the past 3 years and really enjoy it. I have two kids of my own. This is a very important time in a child’s life and am so happy to be a part of it.
