I am so lucky to be a part of the Fireside community and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE being a physical education teacher.
Born and raised in Arvada, Colorado, I grew up playing sports, and to this day, I love the challenge and excitement a good rally in pickleball brings or the bliss of watching a beautiful Colorado sunset while riding bikes with my family on the amazing trails around Louisville. I received my bachelor’s degree in Germanic Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder (GO BUFFS) and my master’s degree in Sport Pedagogy from the University of Northern Colorado.
I am married to Andrew Johnson, who is a PE teacher at Platt Middle School, and we have two awesome boys, Duke and Callahan, and an adorable golden retriever named Lou.
Every year, I can't wait to work with the Fireside kids to inspire them to lead a kind and healthy life. In PE, we can not only focus on healthy food choices and skill development, but we look at being a part of a team and practice treating all of your teammates with RESPECT and KINDNESS.
