Teaching is my second career and I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to serve my own community while sharing my love for science! I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems and I am currently working on my Master's in Education at Western Colorado University. While I enjoyed a career in I.T. for over 11 years, I knew early on that teaching was my real passion and I spent many years volunteering in educator roles for various non-profits. I absolutely love working with middle-schoolers - I admire their curiousity, independence, and honesty. I strive to have a classroom in which students feel safe, respected, and ready to learn. I look forward to working with the students and their families this school year!
A little more about me - I'm from Fort Collins but have lived in and around Thornton for the past 17 years. My husband and I have three children that attend Adams12 schools and we are proud to be part of the Five Star community! I lead a local Girl Scout troop of 26 girls and absolutely love spending as much time in the mountains as possible. I love all things Girl Scouts, hiking, books (sci-fi and fantasy), video games, hockey (Go Avs!!), and games.
