Parent/Family Expectations!!
  
  Yes, I have "expectations" for you too! Taking an active role in your student's Baker experience is a great way to ensure success.  Read together, talk about homework, ask questions often, and call/email me whenever you need further clarifications. Don't forget to check your student's grades online regularly. This is another great way to stay informed. (To access the link directly to the login page, click the "grades" tab to the left).

A little about me (in case you were wondering)...

I have been teaching at Baker for 10 years now and feel very fortunate to be working with an amazing staff and community. I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA, but have lived in many places, including: Bellingham, WA, SE Alaska, Yukon Territory, Canada, and Sun Valley, Idaho. I love sports and used to play competitive fastpitch. I am an avid hiker, adventurer, reader, lover of nature and animals, and learning new things.
