I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Go Wyo! I have an ELL (English Language Learner) Endorsement and a Master's Degree in LDL ( Teaching the Linguistically Diverse Learner) from Regis University in Denver. In addition to my current positions, I have many years of classroom teaching experience in grades K-3.
I was born in Calumet City, Illinois, but grew up in Orange County, California. My husband's name is Scott and we have two children, Jessica and Dylan. One of the many things I enjoy about being a teacher is helping children "discover" the world around them!
I love to read, hike, and Jazzercise! My family and I enjoy watching movies together and going to concerts. I have a passion for traveling and learning about other cultures. So far, I have traveled to Mexico, England, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Scotland, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Hawaii, Thailand, and Wales. I have many other destinations on my "bucket list"!
