Hi! I’m excited to join the Mountain View staff! I am one of the DHH teachers working with self-contained/resource DHH kids 1-5th grade. This will be my 19th year as Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing. I started out as itinerant in Fort Morgan, then self-contained in upper elementary in Des Moines, IA. I moved back to Colorado and worked in self-contained classrooms/resource in Everitt Middle and Jefferson High (later Wheat Ridge High) in Jeffco. Then I went into the IPP (Interpreter Preparation Program) at FRCC Westminster, and interpreted in community colleges and Video Interpreting for about half a year and ongoing at community colleges in the summers since then. I’ve also interpreted lots of concerts. Most recently I went back to teaching and was itinerant in St. Vrain Valley Schools, mostly in Longmont.
More personally, I was born in Sweden and my family moved to Massachusetts when I was 2, then Colorado when I was 6. So, I’ve been in Colorado most of my life. I'm married and we have two lovely grown children, and two rambunctious dogs. I love and writing reading books, drawing, singing, and riding my bike.
