Class of 2020

Hometown: Fife, WA

Major: Elementary Education

Minor: Literacy


My favorite thing about Ellensburg is...

The community of Ellensburg is my favorite because everyone is welcoming, kind, and helpful. The life style here is more laid back than it is on the west side where I grew up and I like the change of pace!

I chose Central because...

I felt most at home with the small community and family type environment. Also, Central is one of the best schools for my major! CWU produces 18% of Washington's teachers which is higher than any other university in the state!

My favorite class/professor...

EDLT 409 with Dr. Butterfield was my favorite class! I completed this literacy course for my minor fall quarter of 2018. Each teacher candidate in my class was assigned a student at a local elementary school that we would teach twice a week! The experience of working with my 3rd grader has taught me more than any other class because I made each lesson specially for my student's needs!

My favorite part of being an ambassador is...

I get to share my passion for my school with other students and my job allows me to meet new people almost everyday.

I'm passionate about...

Staying active Eating Food Campus Recreation
