Posted On: Thursday, August 20, 2020

I will be beginning my 30th year of teaching (26th in Clatskanie). I have taught everything from first grade to eighth grade, served as the middle school counselor, and most recently was the Student Services Specialist at Clatskanie Elementary.  I am a fourth generation Clatskanie native with a love for the community and the students at all levels of the school district.  I look forward to continuing my journey at Clatskanie Elementary School in the Dean of Student/Principal capacity and working together with staff to create a safe, rigorous, and consistent learning atmosphere for all students.  As we maneuver this uncertain COVID time, it will be my challenge to make it as minimally taxing as possible.  The Clatskanie community has met adversity in the past, collaborated, and prospered.  Through my new role, I will lead by example and support all that I can with hard work, dedication, and a genuine love for the community.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I can be reached at (503)-728-2191 extension 2414, or at (503)-369-2951.
