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 was born in 2011 and will be joining the Shepardson community in kindergarten this year, my daughter was born in 2014, and my youngest son in 2016. It is a joy to watch them grow into their very distinct personalities.
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.
