I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and have been teaching for more than 30 years; 17 of those years being at Westlake. We have a great staff and the learning environment can't be beat when it comes to middle school! I enjoy working with 6th graders and exploring the world of reading and writing together. My husband and I have six children - our sixth just graduated from high school this past year. I love to travel, camp, hike, and bike. Here's to a new school year!!
