I was born and raised here in Bellingham, and I absolutely love it! Though I have traveled abroad many times to Spain, France, Mexico, and many other parts of the United States, Bellingham has always felt like home. I graduated from Sehome High School and continued my education at Western Washington University, majoring in Spanish and Linguistics while earning my teaching certificate. I taught Spanish for 8 years before beginning the amazing immersion program here at ECS. During that time I also continued my education in Salamanca, Spain, earning my MA in Spanish Language and Culture in 2014.
I love languages, music, and learning new things! In my free time, or when travelling, I can be found reading, playing violin, listening to (and often singing along with) musicals, and knitting, crocheting or tatting. Creativity is a gift that God has given me and I love to share it with my students! I am so excited to share in the language and learning of the students of Evergreen!
