Hello and Welcome to our Orting Primary School Website!

It is a pleasure to serve the Orting School District.   As Principal of Orting Primary School, I have the wonderful opportunity to work with passionate staff, supportive families, and very enthusiastic students!  I am also honored to work alongside an amazing leadership team and school board.

At Orting Primary School, we are dedicated in transforming the lives of students in a culture of learning and caring.  We accomplish this by empowering our children with skills necessary to become academically, socially, emotionally, and physically successful and responsible children.  I believe in the strength of family and school.  Our collective partnership ensures our students are ready for college, careers, and life!

As an educator ~ I have 32 years of educational experience ranging from teaching at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, serving as a district Teacher Mentor, and as an Assistant Principal.  Each experience has provided me insight into the developmental stages of children and adults, and the importance a solid academic foundation has on lifelong learning.  My most recent endorsements include certifications in English Language Learning and Early Childhood Education. I am curious, courageous, and insightful.  I am a life-long learner. 

For fun ~ I enjoy playing with family and friends.  My husband David is a musician and teaches orchestra ~ we love music! My adult children (Marjorie and Daniel) are amazingly adventurous and both serve in the medical fields.  I love cycling the open roads, hiking in nature, eating chocolate chip cookies, and reading!  Oh yes…I love throwing the Frisbee to our dog, Fred!
