I began working at Prairie Hills when it first opened in 2003. I am very fortunate to be able to do what I am most passionate about, which is working and learning with children! I began my teaching career in Texas. I have been teaching in Colorado schools since 1994. I have taught kindergarten and first grade and have also worked as a literacy specialist. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, and my Master’s degree from Regis University.
I have two amazing teenage children, Zachary and Emily. My husband Daniel is a business intelligence analyst for Denver Public Schools.First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of skills is accelerated. During our First Grade year together, your child will demonstrate growth in reading, writing, mathematics, and much more. I hope to make your child’s First Grade learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.
