I am very honored to be your child's first grade teacher! After moving to Colorado from Illinois 25 years ago I decided to make a career switch and follow my passion for working with children. I taught 5th grade for a year, then took a 6 year hiatus to be a stay at home mom to our three children. When a position became available at Meridian, where two of my children were attending school, I jumped on the chance to work at the school I had grown to love. Meridian is now my home away from home!
I received my BA in Speech Communication from the University of Illinois and my Master's of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Colorado, Denver. This is my 13th year teaching at Meridian and I love my students, my job and my school! When I’m not teaching I like to digital scrapbook, camp, travel and take continuing education classes.
