About Me
Biographical Sketch: 

This is my first year teaching at Timnath Elementary.  In May of 2019, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado.  I student taught with Mrs. Pellman, and fell in love with Timnath Elementary.  I feel so lucky that I get to teach at this amazing school.  I was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado.  I have a twin sister and a younger brother, who is in 5th grade.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy being with my friends and family.  My hobbies include hiking and dancing.  I have been dancing for 18 years and was a member of the University of Northern Colorado Dance Team. (I love cheering for the Bears!)  In addition to hiking and dancing, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time outside. 

Why I enjoy teaching: 

Being a teacher has always been a dream of mine.  I enjoy teaching because I want to inspire and lead the youth.  I want to serve as a role model and helping hand to my students.  Seeing each student grow and achieve greatness throughout the year, brings me so much joy.  There is never a dull moment spent with 5th graders, and I would not want to spend my time doing anything else.
