About Me
Biographical Sketch: 

I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Teaching is in my blood, both my parents were teachers and my brother is as well.  I moved to Fort Collins to attend college at CSU for my undergraduate.  That is where I met my husband.  I continued my education after my undergraduate at DU and earned a Masters Degree in Education.  I began my teaching career at Centennial Elementary in Greeley.  After seven years there I made the switch to Timnath.  My husband and I have a son (Jack) and a daughter (Siri).
 

Educational Background: 

BA in English Literature from CSU
MA in Curriculum and Instruction from DU

Why I enjoy teaching: 

I enjoy teaching because it gives me the opportunity to help students become life long learners. I also love the challenges teaching presents because it pushes me to continue learning.

Favorite Books: 

I am a book lover. I love many adolescent literature books. I love Bridge to Terabithea, Stargirl, and The Fault in Our Stars. I am also in a bookclub so I'm always reading new books.

Interests & Hobbies: 

I enjoy spending time with my family when I am not working. We like to camp, hike, ski and take bike rides. We also love to spend time in Steamboat on my parents' farm relaxing.

What I love about my school: 

I love the long history of Timnath Elementary.  This is a truly unique school with traditions that aren't found in many schools today. I also love the community at Timnath, it is very supportive.

Favorite Quote:

My Classroom
About My Classroom: 

My classroom is a spaced filled with learning while having fun. Don't be surprised to hear us laughing as you walk by! I strive to have a classroom that allows students to learn independence and discover their own strenghts.
