I was born in Wisconsin have lived in Tacoma Washington since I was 3 years old. I graduated from Lincoln High School and then went to business school through what was then called Tacoma Technical Institute (now Bates College). When I was going to Tacoma Tech, I was offered a part-time job with the Tacoma Teachers Association which exposed me to work in the education field. Later, when I married, I moved to Denver and worked for the school District there. When we returned to Washington, I worked first for the Tacoma School District and then found my way to Bethel SD. What I like most about working for Acceleration Academies is my association with my peers there and sitting with the GCs, sharing a little bit of their lives.
