I am a Colorado native. Prior to teaching, I spent three years as a preschool para. I have been an elementary teacher for 18 years (12 years at Coronado Hills) and have taught kindergarten, first, second and third grade. I received a BA from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and a Linguistically Diverse Learners Endorsement through Regis. I love working with children. They amaze me, invigorate me and touch my heart.
I love to read children’s books and have a huge classroom collection. My book collection at home is also growing now that I have a daughter that I can pass my love for literature on to. I love nature and animals. I enjoy traveling new roads throughout the Rocky Mountains, playing in the water, snuggling with our cats, and spending quality time with my family.
