    I am excited and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of the Fireside team of staff, families, and students. This will be my 13th year teaching in the primary grades. I have taught kindergarten for the last 4 years, but also have 4 years experience in each 1st and 2nd grades.

    I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado in Psychology and Elementary Education. I also have my Master’s degree from the University of Colorado in Social, Multicultural, and Bilingual Foundations of Education.

    When I am not wearing my “teacher hat”, I am most likely busy being mom to my three children, Dawson, Mason, and Anniston. I love spending time with friends and family, hiking, biking, boating, cooking, baking, traveling, creating, and laughing!
    I believe that Kindergarten sets the tone for the rest of a child’s educational journey. I want them to be excited to come to school each day to learn and explore so they can become lifelong learners. It is not only my job to teach them the standards, but to shape them into individuals who can succeed inside and outside of the school setting. I look forward to partnering with parents to create the best kindergarten experience for each child in my classroom.
