I received a BA in Education from CWU in 1982. In 2004, I received a MS in Health and Physical Education from Emporia State University.


I started teaching in 1982 as a substitute teacher in Ellensburg, Kittitas, and Thorp.  In 1985, I was hired at Kittitas as Title I, LAP Math, and Elementary PE teacher. I taught Middle School Health and PE for a year, but other than that all my years teaching have been at Kittitas Elementary.


I am a home grown girl, born in Ellensburg and lived here all my life.  My parents, Buck and Merna Minor, raised six children on a ranch in the northwest part of the valley.  I grew up a tomboy (4 brothers) and spent many hours riding horses, climbing trees and playing backyard football.  I graduated in 1978 from Ellensburg High School, and 1982 from CWU.  I married Fred in 1984.  We have two adult sons - Hunter (born in 1989-Mechanical Engineer) and Spencer (born in 1992-Safety and Health Manager). My life revolves around family (our boys and all my siblings still live in the valley), friends and teaching. My husband and I enjoy spending as much time as possible in the outdoors - hunting, hiking, biking, camping, and snowmobiling.  Oh yes, I now ride a mule!  I have a passion for reading, and I love to bake for my family!
