I have been a teacher in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools for twenty eight years. I have been at Coronado Hills Elementary for eight years and I have taught second grade for all of those years. I have a husband named Tom and two children of my own. Brandon is twenty-one and Jordyn is eighteen. I also have a dog named Cabo. I am a Colorado native and currently live in Golden. I love to run and spend time with my family. I am also passionate about working with kids and believe that a partnership with parents is essential. This partnership allows me to work closely with parents to meet the individual needs of the children that I teach. My motto is "Believe in yourself and never stop striving for you goals!" This is what I work hard to instill in my students each and every day!
