I currently teach 5th grade Math and Science and have been teaching in Denver Public Schools for 6 years. I taught 5th grade at Smith Elementary just across Colorado Blvd for 3 years and then moved to Columbine 3 years ago. I attended Colorado State University and majored in Physics and Secondary Education. I decided to make the switch to Elementary as I love sharing my passion for math with students still forming their conceptual understanding. I am currently working on completing my Masters degree in Mathematics & Science Curriculum at the University of Texas at Arlington.
I grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado and enjoy being in the mountains snowboarding in the winter and camping or hiking in the summer. I have a 3 year and 1 ½ year old at home, and I am due with my 3rd boy in March and am excited (mostly) to have a house full of crazy boys!
I look forward to working with our amazing students here at Columbine! I am truly grateful to be part of such a talented community of learners that challenge me to be a better teacher each year!
