I am thrilled to be teaching first grade at Mountain View. This will be my 14th year in education. I have been a para, taught pre-k, kindergarten, and second grade. I was born in California, but have lived in Colorado since 1994. My husband and I have three wonderful children. Our oldest daughter is married and just had twins. I love being a Gigi! Our son is in college and our youngest daughter is a senior in high school. When I am not working, I enjoy playing soccer, hanging out with my family and dogs, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors. I am a lifelong Disney fan. My family and I love to travel! I feel blessed to be a part of the Mountain View family. My goal is for every child to feel safe, valued, and desire to be life long learners.
