I'm so excited to be a part of an amazing team at Mountain View Elementary! This is my fifth year at MVE and my eighth year teaching first grade. My teaching experience has allowed me to teach a variety of subjects and grade levels. I have taught pre-school, third grade, fouth grade, seventh grade, eight grade, PE, and where my heart currently lies, in first grade. I love exploring the beautiful state that we live in and when I'm not in the classroom I can usually be spotted in the mountains with my camera capturing the scenery and wildlife. I was born in raised in Northern NY and have lived in Colorado for the past ten years. I have my AS in Counseling, a BA degree in Psychology, and my MAT in Elementary Education. I consider myself a life long learner and love to bring my passion for learning into my classroom. I'm looking forward to working together with all my families to make first grade unforgettable!
