I have been a teacher for 13 years and have a passion for education. I am a native Coloradan and enjoy spending time in the great outdoors with my husband and 2 adorable dogs. In the summer, you can find me camping, hiking and riding 4-wheelers. I received my teaching license from Metropolitan State College and my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley University. My personal love of learning has not changed; I am lucky that APS offers various professional development opportunities in which I actively participate in to keep current with new curriculum and ways to best meet the needs of all my students.
