About Me: I was born and raised in London UK. I emigrated to Boston in 1992. I got my Bachelor's degree in middle school education at Lesley University, and my Master's in Education at Westfield State. I moved to Colorado in 2003 and now live in Parker with my husband, cats, neighborhood coyotes and mountain lion!!!. I have a daughter who is 20 years old and three adult stepsons.

This is my 4th year at Mrachek and my 12th year teaching. I have taught social studies, language arts and CLDE (students with a second language other than English spoken at home).

I love to travel and learn about new cultures and so now I can learn from the wonderful students I teach at Mrachek. This year my middle school language learners will enhance their skills in academic language to support their learning and thinking in their core classes. We will study a variety of topics to extend our vocabulary and language skills.

 “As your teacher you should know I will work hard to prepare lessons for you that will challenge you to learn. We will explore, think and learn together, as we improve our academic language skills. "
