I am so excited about the new year ahead at Cotton Creek. I am a Colorado native and grew up in Arvada. I have a passion for teaching reading and love to see students thinking of themselves as learners. I have taught in Adams 12 School District for 18 years. I taught for 1 year in Jefferson County. I have spent most of my teaching career teaching 2nd grade but I have taught 1st grade for 8 years. First graders bring a lot of curiosity and engagement to the learning process. I can’t wait to foster that curiosity to help them become critical thinkers and even more curious about the world around them.
When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling, scrapbooking, basketball, camping, watching my son Wesley play various sports, spending time with my family and baking and decorating cakes. I also enjoy watching the Broncos play on Sunday. Go Broncos!
