Degrees and Certifications:
* First things first: My last name is pronounced "Dy-ness" kinda like you're getting ready to say "dinosaur" I am an ELA tutor, primarily here to assist the English dept teachers with their students; here to support you.
A little bit about me: I was born & raised in the Tri-Cities, graduated from Pasco High and CBC (first one to go to college in my family). I'm married with two children, one graduated PHS, CBC & is working away at UW Bothell, the other finished his academic career at NHHS and is living an "adventuring" life: working on tall ships & a horse ranch in Martha's Vineyard & working in Maui in a food truck & on a horse ranch. I have worked in the Pasco School District for around 20 years with my 10 years at NHHS being my best gig by far! I am a PASSIONATE reader & hope to get you convinced to to be one too!!!
I LOVE: art , musiC, reading , travel , & food!
I'm SO glad you're here! Here on this page, but mostly here at NHHS. It is a great place to be; you'll find that we're not your average school. EVERY staff member at this school is here with only one priority in mind: YOU!
