I came to Puyallup Online Academy (POA) this year from Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA) in the Tacoma School District for the last seven years. I am excited to be at POA and work with students in an alternative learning environment. My time at SOTA really taught me the value of alternative learning experiences for students and how important it is to provide students with a supportive structure that meets their needs!
This is my 26th year in education. Most of that has been in counseling although I also have certificates in elementary education, special education and program management. I have three children - all grown - and 2 grandsons; with a grand daughter on the way.
I am excited to be a part of the Digital Learning team and to make a difference with my students.
Puyallup Digital Learning-Counselor for all Puyallup Online Academy students.
