I have been a Greyhound since 2000 and have to say I love teaching at Gaston. I graduated from Western Oregon University back when it was called Western Oregon State College.   My family consists of 4 grown children and 6 wonderful grandchildren. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family,  boating, wakeboarding, camping, reading, and traveling.

For the 2016-2017 school year I will be teaching two courses of 8th Grade US History, two courses of Sophomore US History, one course of Government, one course of Pacific Northwest History, and one course of World History through Film
