I am so thrilled to be teaching this amazing, charismatic 5th grade remote class at Westview. I look forward to working hard towards meaningful goals and sharing my love of learning with these talented students! I currently live in Durango, Colorado and this is my fifteenth year of teaching. I'm particularly passionate about reading and writing instruction, because I believe the stories we tell are important to us, shape how we see the world, create positive change, and build empathy. I can tell many of my students have wonderful stories to tell, and rich experiences. I look forward to getting to know families at Westview, and working together to find what makes your child most excited about learning!
