I am a teacher who is passionate about learning and creativity. I strive to create an engaging classroom that nurtures the talents and interests of all of my students. I have a special passion for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and the opportunity it provides to spark creativity and collaboration in the classroom.
I first began my teaching career in Colorado during the fall of 2000. I have taught grades K-5, spent time as a specialist teaching Title One Reading and Enrichment, and served as an instructional coach for teachers. I love working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I have a passion for creative thinking, exploration, and laughter!
I am a resident of this wonderful town. I live with Mr. Gallegos and our daughters Sadie and Ella. We love to hike, camp, ski, snowshoe, run, visit museums, and head to the beach. If it is outdoors, we are there!
