Hi! My name is Maria Stiles and I am so excited to be entering my 5th year of teaching while here at Pacific Ridge Elementary. I grew up in Scappoose, Oregon and loved being a member of the Cowapa League while growing up, so being a part of this corner of Oregon again is amazing! My first career was as a Fine Art Conservator, a job that took me around the country and the world. As a second career teacher, I have found that same joy, excitement, and wonder within my classroom walls. I am so excited to have landed here in Seaside and look forward to becoming the best Puffin I can be!
