About Your Teacher

This is my seventh year teaching at Niwot Elementary.  My first year as a second grade teacher. Add in at the end that one of my grandchildren (Mason) who is 3 years old is starting preschool at Niwot this year and I am so excited about this.  I also served as a 3,4,5 interventionist and as the ELL teacher. I really like the positive energy that fills the halls of Niwot Elementary.  I enjoy coming to work everyday and spending my time teaching young minds.

A little bit about me... I was born in Colorado and moved to Boulder when I was 4 years old.  My father was a Special Ed. teacher at Southern Hills Junior High back in the 1960s. I attended various schools in Boulder and graduated from Boulder High School and the University of Colorado - Boulder.  I am married and have five children and 4 grandchildren. I also have three Pomeranians named Elliot, Charlie and Bella.

In 2009-2010, my husband, myself, our youngest child, and our 3 dogs moved to and lived in Edinburgh, Scotland. This was an amazing experience as we had the opportunity to travel around Europe and live in a slightly different culture!  When we returned, we sold our house in south Boulder and moved to Gunbarrel. I feel fortunate to be a third grade teacher at Niwot Elementary.
