I'm excited to teach 5th grade at Palmer Lake Elementary! This will be my 8th year in education. Prior to this position I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, and I spent a year working as an Interventionist for Special Education and Gifted & Talented students. I am a Colorado native, but spent the last two years living and teaching in Texas. I earned my Bachelor's degree from the University in Colorado in Psychology and Neuroscience with an endorsement in Elementary Education. I went on to earn my Master's from CU as well in Equity in Education and Cultural Diversity with an emphasis in Bilingual Education. I am married and have two dogs. I love spending time with my family, reading, hiking, traveling, and cooking.

I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year full of learning and growth here at Palmer Lake!
