I received my BS in Early Childhood Education from Colorado State University in May of 2017. I am a first year teacher, but this is my second year being at Shepardson. I student taught with Lesley Hawkes the second half of the 2016-2017 school year in 2nd grade. I am so excited to be an official member of the Shepardson team and to be teaching 3rd grade!
I grew up in Franktown, Colorado. Yes, I had cows. I attended elementary, middle, and high school in Parker, Colorado. I have been living in Fort Collins for the past four years, attending Colorado State University. My parents own a restaurant, rafting, and zip line company in Canon City, Colorado. I spend my summers there helping run the family businesses. I have 3 siblings; Tanner (senior at CSU!), Emma (sophomore in high school), and Lilly (8th grader). My dog is my best friend, his name is Chevi. I also have a cat.
I love being outdoors. I live by a pond so I am often out fishing and paddle boarding. I also enjoy rock climbing, yoga, and running. Aside from being outdoors, I love spending time with my family. Some things we like to do together include; eating, rafting and zip lining, and watching The Bachelor.
