I am just starting my 24th year of teaching! I’ve taught all elementary grades, but I started teaching kindergarten 10 years ago and found my home! Getting to witness the remarkable growth of my students each year keeps me coming back year after year. The hugs help, too:) When I’m not working, I’m mom to Max (15) and Lucy (8) and to our fur babies, Bailey (dog) and Coco (kitten) who all keep me busy! We love being outside, park-hopping, hiking, riding our bikes, baking, reading and watching movies. I’m originally from Los Angeles, but I have been in Colorado since college (University of Colorado Boulder). We do get back to LA as frequently as possible to visit family and play at the beach.
