Hello! I have been with the Lewis-Palmer School District since 2005, and I am very excited to be working with our English Learners and their families again this year. I began my career as an elementary classroom teacher and taught in Maryland, California, and Colorado, also in different capacities before my current role as English Language Teacher. At Bear Creek I work with students in Kindergarten thru sixth grade who have another language in addition to English in their home or background. English Learners at Bear Creek are very special! My desire is to inspire in them a love of learning and to assist them in achieving academic English proficiency. It is a privilege to be a part of the wonderful and supportive staff at Bear Creek Elementary School.
