I'm one of those rare Colorado natives you hear about but rarely ever see! I was born and raised in Louisville and never saw much of a reason to leave this wonderful place! I received my B.A. from University of Northern Colorado and my M.A. from the University of Colorado. I have been teaching since 2010 and am constantly learning right along with my students. I am a firm believer in educating the whole child and love when those unplanned, teachable moments present themselves. When I'm not teaching, you will find me jet-setting to new places, trying out a new recipe, seeking out live music, or playing outside in our Colorado backyard.
