Welcome first grade students and families! I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher for the 2020-2021 school year! I know that we are living in uncertain times right now, but rest assured that I will do everything that I possibly can to make this a wonderful year of learning and growth for my students. I have been teaching since 1991. During this time I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth Grade. My passion is the younger students. I have my Masters Degree from University of Northern Colorado. I have two children of my own - Taylor and Connor. I have been married to my husband, Kyle for 26 years. My favorite part about being a teacher is getting to know my students and helping them become lifelong learners. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of your child’s learning journey. Together we will accomplish many things throughout the year. We will encounter some stumbling blocks along our journey, but those can be expected. We will also have many moments of celebrations. Together we will make first grade a year to remember. Together we will be a part of seeing your child grow in many areas. I am looking forward to working together as a team to make this a memorable year. When I am away from school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy traveling to the beach.
