Hello! My name is Murika and I'm a teacher! I've taught elementary school for 5 years and middle school for 2 years. My husband also teaches high school physics at Tigard High. We moved to Tigard from Fargo, North Dakota about 3 years ago and have loved exploring Oregon. We have a yellow lab named Barnum and we love to hike, eat, and spend time with our friends and family. I am looking to tutor or nanny during this school year, as I decided not pursue a teaching job to teach online. My passion is not only teaching kids new things, but also developing relationships with them to help them become positive members of their communities!
