Values: This year I am focusing on the value of being Joyful! It is so important for students to experience joy throughout their learning and to enjoy their time at school. I love learning new things myself and am extremely grateful for all of the wonderful people and experiences in my life.
Bio: I grew up in Indianapolis, IN and moved to Colorado shortly after graduating from Indiana University. I began teaching 5th grade in Jefferson County. Then earned my Master’s Degree in English as a Second Language/Multicultural Education from CU Boulder while teaching 5th grade at Munroe Elementary. I have worked throughout DPS in several different roles.
Hobbies: I love spending time with family and friends! My husband and I have two great teenage kids who send us all over the place to cheer them on from the sideline. Our family loves the outdoors: skiing, biking, hiking, and rafting. I am also a dedicated yogi and would never pass up a great trip!
