    1st grade

    Bachelor's of Arts in Mathematics and a Computer Science minor from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, Teacher's License through Friends' School in Boulder, Masters in Educational Psychology from University of Colorado - Denver, and working on my Masters in Special Education - Gifted & Talented from the University of Northern Colorado..

    16 years in Computer Science as a programmer and Database Administrator in Health Insurance, Title & Escrow, Retail and Communications. 2013-2014 I was a teacher candidate with the Friends' School and co-taught with Mrs. Covington here at Lafayette. 2014-2016 worked with Julie Marquez as one of the TAG teachers. I am looking forward to working in 1st grade this year.

    I love learning and as a teacher. I believe I can impact future generations by helping a student succeed and help them believe they are capable of the impossible. Kids have a wonderful perspective on the world that challenges my thinking.

    Hobbies & Personal Interests

    I have a passion for flying - both as a private pilot and as a passenger. My family and I love to travel - by plane, boat and car. One of my goals is to visit every state (and I'm close to making it!).  I also enjoy reading, rock climbing, crafts, hiking and cooking.
