I am thrilled to join the community of Mountain View! Education has been at the center of my heart for as long as I can remember. School was always an exciting and wonderful place for me as a child and I don’t remember ever wanting to be anything except a teacher when I grew up. I hope to bring this excitement to my own classroom.
I began teaching first and second grade in St. Vrain in 1993 and then I had my first child in 1999 and chose to stay at home as much as possible as I raised my family. I truly never left education however, and was very involved in numerous apects of education throughout the 15 years. I returned to the classroom full time when my children were a bit older in 2014 and taught in Jeffco for 5 years in first and fifth grades. I’m so excited to be in my second year in Adams 12 and first year at Mountain View as a first grade teacher.
My own family keeps me quite busy. I have been married to my husband, Tim, for 25 years, who also had a long educational career, but now runs his own home inspection business. I have 2 sons and a daughter, all of which are now attending or did attend Adams 12 schools. We have been very impressed by their educational progression in Adams 12 at Coyote Ridge, Westlake, and Legacy. This district and school are great places for your children too!
If I’m not working on something related to teaching, you might find me relaxing in the backyard, enjoying a restaurant patio, sipping a Starbucks, doing a puzzle, watching a movie, or just finding any way to scrounge those fleeting moments of family time! I can’t wait to spend time with your precious ones! Thank you for entrusting them to me this year.
