Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies, and then received a Master's in Elementary Education from University of Northern Colorado. This is my twentieth year teaching in Highland Schools. I spent my first seven years teaching fourth grade at Highland Elementary School. I then moved to seventh grade language arts, which I taught for three years. This will be my fifth year teaching sixth grade science, and fourth year teaching STEM. I am also the district coordinator for gifted and talented programming.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family in the great outdoors. I have three young boys who keep me busy with hiking, running, climbing, and participating in a variety of other activities.
