This is my 22nd year teaching and I have loved every one of them! I have taught every grade Kindergarten - 8th. I enjoy teaching all levels as they all offer unique challenges and rewards. I received my teaching credentials along with a B.A. in Psychology from UNC. I then went on to earn a Masters from Lesley University and an endorsement in literacy from UC at Riverside. I used this knowledge to be a Literacy Coordinator for nine years. I also hold an administrative certificate from the University of Denver and sit on many school and district committees.I was raised in Fraser,Colorado and love small town living. I hope to retire back there one day. I moved to the metro area in 2001 and have taught for Adams 12 Star Schools since then. I have two teenage children who keep me very busy. I love to ski, read and do yoga.
