I have been a teacher at Mountain View for 17 years. I love teaching 2nd grade. My philosophy stems from a cooperative, kind, responsible classroom community. In order to teach children acedemics, they must feel safe, cared for, and important. I strive to give every child what they need to be a succesful learner every day.
I am originally from Buffalo, NY but have been in Colorado since I have been 12 years old. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Food and Nutrition and recieved my teaching degree at the Metropolian State College of Denver. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years and have an 19 year old son. When I'm not teaching you can find me camping, scrapbooking, or watching my son play hockey.
