Family: I am married and have two daughters: Emma who is 5, and Kayleigh who is 2. We are expecting another daughter at the end of December.
Colleges/Degrees: I have my undergraduate degree in Behavioral Sciences from Metropolitan State College, and my masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Denver.
Why I work in education: I work in education because I love watching students learn, and I love how every single day is different.
Education career path (how long you’ve been a teacher/in education; how long in DPS): This is my 9th year working in DPS. I started as a math tutor, then participated in the Denver Teacher Residency to get my teaching license. I taught third grade for 2 years, and I have taught technology and stem for the last 5. I love being a specials teacher because you get to watch students grow over many years.
Hobbies/In my spare time: I enjoy going out to dinner with my husband and with friends. I enjoy taking walks with my girls and playing with them. We also love to go up to Breckenridge to spend time in the mountains.
