    Physical Education Teacher

    I have been a teacher for over 30 years mostly in the Lewis-Palmer School District. I graduated from college with a double major in biology and physical education and then in 1992 completed my masters degree at UCCS in environmental science and exercise science.  Before coming to Lewis-Palmer, I taught biology and physical education at Fort Carson Junior High and biology, geometry and algebra at Coronado High School.  However, for most of my years, I taught life science, physical science and earth science at Lewis-Palmer Middle School and Creekside Middle school. Besides teaching, I have enjoyed coaching a variety of sports including track and cross country, tennis, swimming and dance. I am thrilled now to be working with kids at Bear Creek teaching physical education. I am an enthusiast of teaching kids a life long passion for being active and fit, which will hopefully extend into their lives as adults.
