I have taught one year of third grade and five years of second grade. I also teach graduate level teacher technology courses.
I like to show students that learning can be fun. I try to relate everything we are doing back to an overall emphasis on community service and altruism. I believe that when kids see the importance of what they are learning on a global and cultural scale, they are much more likely to take things from my classroom with them for the rest of their lives!
Nominated for the Golden Heart Award in my school district and most importantly...thank you notes from my students and families throughout my career :)
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Marketing. After a few years in Business, I decided that I wanted to teach. I went back to Regis University for my MA in Elementary Education. I student taught at Highline Community School in Aurora, Colorado and have taught 2nd and 3rd grades at Buffalo Trail Elementary for the past six years.
I love to travel and volunteer. In my free time, I enjoy being outside whether hiking, biking, or just relaxing. I love to read, play music, and spend time with my family.
