TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 20 years in the classroom; the majority of those in 6th grade, with some of the earlier years in 5th and 5/6 multiage settings. My goal is to help students realize their potentials and that learning is actually a life-long endeavor.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe children learn best through real-life, hands-on experiences, preferably in a problem-based situation when possible, where the teacher is a facilitator of that learning. Active learning sparks curiosity and creativity.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Undergrad from Texas Tech University; Masters in Education (MAELT) from Regis University; Gifted & Talented Cohort through Jeffco & DU; Colorado Geographic Alliance Teacher Consultant; highly qualified in math.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love playing tennis and golf and am lucky to live where I can do that year round. Whenever we travel, I'm constantly thinking about how I can bring that experience back to the classroom for students. Once a teacher... ;)
