This is my seventh year of teaching first grade, but my first year of teaching here at Niwot Elementary. I have also taught first grade in Oregon, Washington and Utah. I am returning to teaching after taking time off to be a stay at home mom.
I am a Wyoming native, but lived in the Pacific Northwest for many years. After having my two wonderful children, Audrey and Ethan, my husband Dennis and I decided to move to Colorado to be closer to my family. We love it here and feel lucky to call Niwot our home!
I am excited to be a part of the Niwot Elementary community. I am passionate about literacy, helping kids to think deeply about the curriculum, and creating engaging, hands-on learning opportunities for students. Teaching young children is the most rewarding, fulfilling job there is, and I feel blessed that I am able to do what I love every day!
