I was born and raised in Aberdeen, WA and attended Aberdeen High School. After graduating, I went on to Washington State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree, (go Cougs!). During the 2008-2009 school year, I had the honor to teach my first year with Carol Stanton at the Tongass School (go Thunderbirds!). Now we are back together with over 30 years of teaching experience combined!
My family includes my husband Hakan who is Turkish, my daughter Zeren (7) and son Taylan (3). In addition, my sister lives in town with her husband and two children. In my spare time, I like to be outdoors, perform music, and spend time with my family. Over the summer we moved to a new house out south, Zeren turned 7 and we traveled to WA for vacation. I also celebrated my 20th High School reunion, yikes! I am excited to hear about all of your summer adventures as well.
Thank you for the opportunity for another year in a wonderful school district and top notch school, I very much look forward to another great year!
