I am excited to be returning as a fourth grade literacy teacher and 4th/5th grade ELD teacher here at Vista PEAK. I value each day I get to spend learning with all my incredible students, amazing teammates, and entire inspiring Vista PEAK staff.
I graduated from Northern Michigan University where I received my bachelor’s degree is Elementary Education with a concentration in Literacy. During my time at Northern Michigan University, I played NCAA soccer for the Wildcats! I was born in Colorado Springs but moved to numerous different states before my family landed in Minnesota. Growing up in Minnesota gave me a passion for both the outdoors and my community. I am excited to be back in Colorado where I can enjoy with all the hiking, biking, rock climbing and endless adventures.
Elementary school is such a formative time in student’s lives. When I reflect on my own experience, I can vividly recall many of my favorite things. For example, my favorite subjects were P.E. and art, I loved reading any of the Magic Treehouse series, and my favored color was, and still is, red.
Lastly, I wanted to be a professional soccer player when I grew up, and if you count collegiate soccer, I’d say that dream came true! I am excited to spend this academic year learning and growing with our fourth grade student.
