Values: This year I am focusing on being BRAVE! I will be brave in teaching students that they have the power to learn new things and push themselves even when it’s hard. I will be brave getting to know a new community of learners, parents and co-workers. I will be brave and stand up for students and their needs. I will be brave in growing each day, making mistakes and learning from them.
Bio: I was born in Frankfurt, Germany and moved around quite a bit growing up because my dad was in the military. We ended up in Houston, Texas and San Antonio, Texas for most of my childhood. I graduated for University of Houston (Go Coogs!) and then went on to teach 5th grade and Reading and Math Intervention in Houston. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was little and forced my younger siblings to play school with me (there were 6 of us kids so I almost had a classroom:). We moved to Denver in 2010 and I have loved living where there are actual seasons!
Hobbies: I love to spend time with my family (3 kids and my husband). I spend a lot of time at kids sporting events and enjoy taking vacations so we can actually have time to disconnect from our busy lives and connect as a family. I also love, love, love to read and be at the beach whenever possible!.
