I have been teaching the "Art of Language" for 20 years...a wild, weird, and wonderous endeavor. I was here at CMS in a hard hat 18 years ago taking my first tour as the bricks and mortar were laid, and I have been here roaming these hallways ever since. A Colorado native, a UNC alumni, I have claimed this little corner of the universe to tend to. I love language. I love watching kids grow and learn and claim their identities as they read amazing works of literature and produce thoughtful, original writing. I love the mounatin view from my classroom!
When I am not teaching 7th grade Language Arts on the Colorado Core or sponsoring the Drama Club or the Poetry Club, I like to hang out with my awesome family and friends, read, hike, ski, play golf, chill with my dogs and cat, eat delicious morsels, and nap:).
