When I came up here for school, I fell in love with Fort Collins. My degree is in Early Childhood Education and Human Development and Family Studies from CSU. I have worked at Shepardson since 2011 and have worked as a Kindergarten enrichment teacher, substitute, paraprofessional, and 3rd grade teacher. Elsewhere in Poudre School District I have worked with Integrated Services, as a STEM teacher at a homeschool enrichment program, and as a Gifted and Talented math teacher for 4th and 5th grade.
I have lived in Colorado for most of my life and I feel blessed to live in this gorgeous state. My kids are my life, outside of school. My oldest son Val is in 1st grade here at Shepardson, my daughter Ember is 4, our wild 2 year son's name is Ro, and our sweet baby Maizy was born in May.
I'm an avid reader, particularly science fiction, but also enjoy spending time outside while biking or hiking. My husband is a fabulous cook and enjoys trying new cultural recipes so I guess I can say that eating is also an interest of mine! Spending time with my kids, no matter what we're doing, would have to be my favorite hobby.
