I am a Colorado native. Teaching has been a passion of mine since elementary school. I obtained my Bachelors Degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver in Speech Language Pathology and Elementary Education. Recently I completed my Masters Degree at University of Colorado Denver in Curriculum and Instruction, with an endorsement in Reading as well as Culturally Linguistic Diverse Education. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the mountains, running, and watching my favorite football team, the Denver Broncos play in the fall. I have been teaching for 15 years now. This is my 8th year teaching fifth grade and my 5th year of teaching at McElwain Elementary. I look forward to getting to know you and your child, as well as working with you and your child in the upcoming school year. My Schoology page can be accessed through the dashboard.
