Dear Arrowhead Families,
I am so grateful and excited to be joining your community.
I was raised in San Diego California and moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, where I was a coxswain and then a coach on the men's rowing team. I started my teaching career at Inglewood Junior High on the Sammamish Plateau when it was still mostly pastures, and moved to Seattle Public Schools in 2002. Most recently, I have been assistant principal at Thornton Creek Elementary in northeast Seattle.
Family and community are core values to me. I have two daughters who will be in 7th and 9th grade in Seattle Public Schools, and I live on a street where my neighbors and their children are like extended family. I love to garden, read, go on long walks, and I love anything that involves the sea, rivers or lakes. I also love being an educator. Spending my days with children and the adults who love them is the greatest joy.
I can't wait to meet you and settle in to this powerful community of parents and educators. I look forward to meeting you at the Open House / Supply Drop Off and PTA Welcome Back event on the 29th of August. You can also reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
