Personal Message Hello Gatewood Gators! I’m so excited to be back teaching 3rd grade math and science and teaming with Ms. Ott on Team Vashon. It’s hard to believe that this will be my 8th year teaching at Gatewood. As many of you know, I still have my son Cash here in 2nd grade and daughter Zoe in 5th. This year I will again be part of our school’s Building Leadership Team and be working closely with other teachers on our ALO Plan and differentiating our instruction to meet the needs of all learners in our building. Go Gators!

3rd Grade Teacher


I am a 3rd grade teacher at Gatewood Elementary. I graduated from Washington State University in 2013 and I've been working at Gatewood ever since. I did my student teaching here while I was still in school and I'm so happy that I was able to start my career here as well. I live in West Seattle and I love being part of the Gatewood community.

Personal Message:

I have been a librarian in Seattle Schools for 38 years(!) and am so glad I get to share my love of books and reading with everyone at John Hay.  When not reading, I love spending time with my son and daughter (both Hay alumni), following the Mariners, and traveling.

Personal Message

I am extremely humbled and honored to be a part of the John Hay community. I am a first grade teacher. Last year I interned with Gini Powers in fifth grade. I was also the long term substitute for P.E. from March of 2016 until the end of that 2016 year. I earned my teaching certificate from the University of Washington. Go Huskies!! My wife is also a Seattle Public Schools teacher. She teaches in the West Seattle neighborhood.

I grew up Chicago but have lived in Seattle since 2004. I am completely in love with the Pacific Northwest and enjoy what the area has to offer. I love to hike, camp, kayak, and scuba dive. I also love to paint large abstract paintings. Even though I love art, I love sports too. Seattle sports are my favorites, as well as the Bulls and Blackhawks from Chicago.

My wife and I love to travel.Some of our memorable trips include South Africa and Madagascar as well as Malaysian Borneo and Indonesia.

My wife and I have a ridiculously cute toy Pomeranian named Ish. She has one blue eye and one brown eye.
