Colleges/Degrees: Carthage College (Kenosha, Wisconsin) Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education w/a minor in Spanish
Why I work in education: I work in education because kids are really cool. Every kid deserves to have a teacher who is on their team!
Education career path (how long you’ve been a teacher/in education; how long in DPS): This is my fourth year teaching third grade at Ellis and in DPS overall. Before DPS, I taught for three years in the British Virgin Islands and one year in Douglas County.
Hobbies/In my spare time: In my free time, I like to hang out with my friends and family. I love to go to the mountains with my puppies and go 4-wheeling and hiking too. I also like to stay at home and read, watch funny movies, and cook.
Something you’d be surprised to know about me: I started playing lacrosse on Colorado’s first girls lacrosse team in 5th grade, and ended up playing all throughout high school and college! I loved the competition and playing on a team.
