I attended the University of South Dakota and received my degree in Elementary Education. I earned my Master's Degree in Literacy from Lesley University.
I grew up in South Dakota, where I attended the University of South Dakota. After graduation, I moved to Austin, Texas, and began my teaching career there, teaching both kindergarten and fourth grade. I moved to Fort Collins in 2000 and have been teaching first or second grade at Shepardson ever since. First grade is my home and I truly love all the enthusiasm, energy, and excitement that comes with first graders!
My husband Vaughn and I have a goofy labradoodle named Marley, and a chill Bernedoodle named Moose. If you live nearby, you may see us walking in the neighborhood! We often see Shepardson Stars out and about as we walk the dogs...
I also love to read, walk, bike ride, cook, watch football and movies, and spend time with family and friends. We LOVE exploring all the awesome restaurants in F.C. and checking out new places. We try to take advantage of the gorgeous Colorado weather and be outside as often as we can.
