I grew up in the mid-west and moved to Colorado in 1993 to attend Colorado State University. I currently live in Denver with my wife and two wonderful children (12 & 10). As a family we enjoy traveling and going up to the mountains to go skiing and biking. I completed my BS at Colorado State University and then when on to achieve a MA from University of Colorado. I taught kindergarten previously in Aurora Public Schools and I am looking forward to my 7th year as a Kindergarten teacher. I strongly believe in connecting what we are learning in the classroom to the local community using the outdoors. In Kindergarten every student comes to school with a huge sense of wonder and enthusiasm. I encourage students to keep asking questions and trying to find ways to answer their questions.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with the wonderful students and their families here at Columbine!
