    ​ It is very important to me to create a strong, caring classroom community. I always want kids to feel challenged, safe, loved, and confident.

     I started as an Instructor at Jarrow Montessori School,then I was a Special Education Para educator at Martin Park Elementary, I thaught Second Grade at Superior Elementary School, and started as a Second Grade Teacher at Lafayette Elementary School since 2007.

     I am an avid lover of sports! I love working as a team and cheering for others. I have played soccer all over the country; I also enjoy snorkeling, skiing, and playing around at anything athletic. I love to watch Monday Night Football, the Rockies, the Avalanche or the finals of ANY sport. I am also crazy about books. Above all, I am passionate about my own amazing kiddos, Jack and Mackenzie.
