I am a native of Denver and love living in Colorado. I hold two BA degrees and a MA degree in Education from the University of Colorado at Denver. In 2005, I was awarded the Regie Routman International Reading Association Award as a classroom teacher. This is my 21st year teaching in Adams 12. I have been a Title 1 Reading teacher, Literacy Resource teacher, technology teacher, first grade teacher and fourth grade teacher. I have been teaching literacy classes for the University of Colorado for over ten years. In my spare time I enjoy balancing my life with health and fitness related activities. I volunteer for Special Olympics for basketball and softball. Additionally, I volunteer for the Northglenn Police department as well. I absolutely LOVE working with the amazing students and families at Meridian.
