Hello My Name Is...

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  I am looking forward to a great year!  Summer is here and I hope you have some fun things planned!  

I am very excited to begin our 2nd grade learning journey and get to know all of the wonderful children in our class as well as their amazing families.  

I am a Colorado native, born and raised right here in this beautiful state.  I love the Colorado outdoors and spend most of my time camping, hiking, fishing, and exploring our Rocky Mountains with my family and friends. We gear up in January and plan out our camping season that usually consists of about 20 different trips throughout the season.  Camping is definitely my happy place when I'm not at school. 

On a personal note,  I am married to a wonderful man named Garrett.  We were married three years ago and had a camping wedding in Carbondale, Colorado.   Garrett and I live in southwest Denver, close to where we both grew up as children.  When we are not camping, we enjoy going to Rockies games, Mammoth games, and spending time with our family.  I have a large, loving family and am the "favorite" aunt to 15 amazing nieces and nephews.  I say favorite because I love to spoil them and spend as much time with them as possible!   I couldn't love my family more and am truly blessed to have each one of them in my life!  

 Teaching has always been my passion in life and am very lucky to spend my days doing what I love!    I attended the University of Colorado where in which I received both my bachelors and masters degrees.  I have been teaching a total of 21 years.  I have taught both first grade and second grade.  I love working with our young learners and nothing is better than seeing new discoveries occur and the joy they feel when they smile those happy toothless smiles.  This will be my 16th year here at Redstone as I have been teaching at this amazing school since it first opened.  I love it here and our teachers, staff, parents, students, and community are the absolute best!

I look forward to our journey of learning will embark on together this year.  Oh, the places we will go!  😀
