K-3 STEAM Schoolwide Enrichment & Highly Capable Teacher at Pioneer Elementary in Quincy, WA

I am a hometown teacher in Central Washington State, and the 2017 WA State Teacher of the Year. My classroom is a place to inspire curiosity, create opportunity, and grow potential. Where everyone (me included!) is challenged to do hard things, on purpose, every day. Outside of school, I love spending time in the mountains or on the water, and anything else that involves my husband, baby girl, or black lab Obi Wan. For more writing, and other inspirations from my classroom, find me on Twitter @farmtableteach or at
