photoWelcome!  This is my 2nd year teaching at Green Valley! 

I grew up in Long Beach, CA and moved to Colorado to during high school.  I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2002 with a degree in Communication.  From there, I moved to New York City where I worked in Sales and Marketing.  Working in the hustle and bustle made me realize that I needed a career switch to follow my true passion: working with children.   I moved to Boston to begin my career in education.  I earned a Master's Degree from Simmons College in 2007 in Elementary Education. While
living in Boston, I taught 5th grade. 
I decided to move back home in 2007 to be near family and to take advantage of all that Colorado has to offer!  Some of my hobbies include skiing, dancing, running, hiking, and of course teaching children! 

I have taught 3rd and 4th grade since moving back to Denver.  I look forward to teaching 2nd grade this year at Green Valley.  I can't wait to learn about each and every student. 

You'll notice my email at the bottom of the page for your convenience to email me and say hello. I'd love to hear from you!
