My Teaching Experience:
I have been in the teaching field for over 24 years.  For the first 16 years I have been a Pre-school teacher for Alphabetland Preschool and the YMCA .   I have been at Moanalua Middle School for the last 10 years coaching, teaching and loving it!
Something About Me:
I enjoy watching my 3 children play various sports and love the great outdoors.  I also enjoy traveling to new places to watch them play.  Baseball, softball and volleyball has sure taken me all over the United States.  Coaching, taking pictures, crafts, hiking and being a fan takes up all of my spare time, which is spent mostly at a field or gym.  
I am married to "Coach Dean" and have 3 children, two who have graduated from Pacific University, both have gotten their masters, one in education from Pacific University and the other in Radiation Health Physics from Oregon State University, both are working adults, as well as coaching softball at the college level.  I have one left in college, his second year at St. Martin's University where he also plays baseball.  

“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you
right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.”― Harvey MacKay
