I am excited to be at Century Middle School! I have been part of the Adams 12 family for several years as a parent and an educator. My role as an educator have included teaching kindergarten, first, second, and fifth grades, GT teacher for first graders, middle school Language Arts, Social Studies, ESL and a reading specialist. I have also been a district ESL instructional coach and an adjunct professor at Metro State. I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and I attended Northern Arizona University receiving a Bachelor's in Education and a minor in Business. I started my teaching career in Tempe, Arizona. After moving to Colorado, I earned a Master's degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education from University of Colorado Boulder. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, bike riding, traveling, fairs and festivals.
