My Evergreen school district experience

I have 15 years of experience in Evergreen School District classrooms:

2005: I started volunteering in classroom at Illahee Elementary School + joined the Parent-Teacher organization 

2006: Became Book Fair Co-Chair at Illahee Elementary (through 2012) 

  • Increased book sales to an average of $12,000 every book fair 

  • Illahee received the Scholastic Book Fair award two years in a row 

2007: Kick-started the Geography Passport Club at Illahee Elementary 

  • The Geography Passport club provided students with the opportunity to learn about other countries, facilitated by parent volunteers

  • Filed copyright on behalf of the entire school district so every Evergreen School District student could enjoy the program 

2009: Started Science and Art Fair at Illahee Elementary 

  • Provided learning opportunities for students exploring STEM and non-STEM fields 


Vancouver, WA has been my home for the past 18 years, and I have raised two daughters who attended schools in Evergreen School District.  Professionally, I am a Project Manager and Business Analyst, with experience in root cause analysis and change management. My husband, Naresh, and I have been happily married for over 25 years. We have raised two wonderful daughters, Vipasha and Anusha, were educated in Evergreen School District. We also have an adorable former shelter dog named Blake.
