I am an Adams 5 Star graduate. I attended Northglenn High School and then became a CU Buff! Go Buffs! I married my high school sweetheart. His name is Colin and he's a 5th Grade teacher at Riverdale Elementary. I have three sons who also graduated from Northglenn High School. All three are attending in-state colleges. So, needless to say I am a proud mother! Oops! I almost forgot to include my four furry canine children. Yes, I have four wonderful dogs too!
After college, I was the Publications Specialist at Front Range Community College. After the birth of my first son, I decided to stay home and raise children. They came in rapid succession, 15 months apart. When they became older and were able to come to work with me, I was hired by Commerce City for 3 years to teach pre-school and I developed a class called, "Incredible Edible Story Time." When all 3 children started elementary school, I became a substitute teacher for 4 years until I decided I wanted something more reliable.
This decision lead me to Cotton Creek! It is wonderful to be encourage students to read. I love reading! I love ideas! There is nothing better in the world than seeing a child develop an interest in knowledge. I enjoy coming to work and try each and everyday to make the library an open and welcoming place for all children, staff and parents.
