I have worked at PSIS since 2003, 16 plus because I worked as a parapro for 2 years and 1 year in the dorm in the early 80’s. Total 19 years. I also worked as a parapro in Omak School District for 11 years.
I attended Wenatchee Valley College-Omak Campus for 2 years, then graduated from Heritage University-Omak Campus with a BA in Education.
I have 2 daughters, the eldest is Michelle, who use to work here for 3 years after she graduated from University of Washington with a BA. She received her Masters Degree in Athletic Field from Central University. She currently is the Director of The Boys and Girls Club, in Nespelem. She has one daughter, Preslee, who is 2 years old. My youngest daughter is Rachel, she currently works for the Colville Tribe Human Resource Department in Nespelem. She received her BA in HR at Eastern Washington University. She has one daughter, Kyra, who attended here from K-2nd grade. Kyra attends Omak Middle School. Rachel has one son, Messiah, who is currently in K-1 here.
I have played softball since 1977, I currently play with a women’s team in Wenatchee with my daughter Michelle and I play in a Senior League with Shirley Bowden. I am a pitcher, and an infielder.
I went to St. Mary’s Mission in 7th and 8th grade. During that time I had stated my goal was to come back as a teacher. I achieved this goal but I waited until after I had my children to go back to school. I am very happy to be back on campus at this beautiful school learning and teaching.
My hopes and dreams for PSIS is to become a school that meets all of our “Vision Statements”. “To prepare our children to be the speakers of our language, guardians of our culture, and leaders of our future.”
