I am excited to be working on the team at Cotton Creek Elementary School! I worked for 9 years with 8th grade and then 6th grade students at Silver Hills Middle School. I have been at Cotton Creek for 5 years.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Specific Learning Disabilities at Appalachian State University in North Carolina and have continued to participate in professional development over the years. Before coming back to teaching, I was a store designer for many years where I also taught adults about merchandising. Now, I work specifically with students who have Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals through Special Education, but I also support learning for all students! Last year, I completed my Master's of Education specializing in Literacy and Special Education.
Originally from Maryland, my husband and I moved to Colorado 22 years ago. We are both teachers in Adams 12 Five Star School District, so we are usually overwhelmingly busy during the school year between work and home. When I am not teaching, I am raising my six-year-old daughter and spending time with our smart and energetic pup, Luna. We enjoy cycling, hiking, rock climbing, and reading.
I look forward to working with you and your student this year!
