I began my career in educationteaching kindergarten through second grade eventually moving up to fifth grade. I grew up in Commerce City, CO graduating from Adams City High School. I went on to the University of Colorado in Boulder where I earned a BA in Psychology. I always dreamed of working with children, and eventually I realized that teaching was the key. So I began teaching for a charter school, and returned to school to earn my teaching license.
I have always had a passion for learning, in which teaching is a profession that continually embraces that. I am a firm believer that not only do my students learn from me, but I too learn from them. McElwain truly is a special school that I am proud to be a part of.
