About Me
Family: 

This past summer, I relocated to Fort Collins from Yorktown, Virginia. I have one younger brother, Adam, who joined me from Denver in my new adventure. Our parents, who currently live in Williamsburg, Virginia, will be relocating to Colorado next year!

Education: 

After graduating from Lewis Palmer High School in Monument, CO in 1998, I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia to attend the College of William and Mary where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology.

Hometown: 

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. When I was ten, my family and I relocated to Monument, CO. The Hampton Roads area of Virginia has been my home for the past 20 years. Fort Collins is now (and I hope will forever be) my hometown. I look forward to starting a family here!

Interests/Hobbies: 

I am an outdoors girl! I love camping, kayaking, and hiking. I thoroughly enjoy playing sports like volleyball and kickball as well as board games like Qwirkle. Reading is also a favorite past time. Kristen Hannah is my favorite author. I also scrapbook and enjoy cooking new recipes I find on Pinterest.

Favorite Quote: 

"Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination." William Longgwood

"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud." Maya Angelou

Favorite Book or Story: 

Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing, Bridge To Terabithia, The Harry Potter Series, and The Land of Stories Series are just a few of my favorite books!

Favorite Sports Team: 

I will forever be a Denver Broncos fan!

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

In the past 15 years as a teacher, I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in all subject areas. I must admit that although I love teaching all content, I am partial to teaching Writing and Math. I love the anchor charts involved!

About My Classroom: 

I am a zany, enthusiastic, and encouraging teacher. I recognize that each of my students come with a plethora of different skills, talents, and academic abilities. This year, students will encounter predicable routines, high expectations, and a lot of laughter in my classroom. This is a safe environment where we learn and grow together. I have been told by previous students that our class is a "family". Since that day, that is how I view my classroom. We are a family who supports, nurtures, and encourage one another.
