Professional Background:

I've worked at Meadow View as a 1st, 1st/2nd, 2nd and 2nd/3rd grade teacher since 2003.  This year I'm so excited to teach a 1st grade class!  I was a Digital Educator Mentor for 2008-2011 and love using technology in my classroom. Our class was a recipient of a Douglas County Educational Foundation, 2008 Responsible Citizen Grant for 20 iPod Shuffles and a Qwest technology grant in 2010.  Let's have a great year!  :)

Personal:

I am a Missouri native and am an avid Missouri Tigers fan! LET'S GO MIZZOU!  I have loved living in Colorado since 2003 and am a HUGE Avalanche fan as well.  I have the unique, and very fun, experience of working with my mother, Cindy Bledsoe, here at Meadow View everyday and that has been a great experience for me and my students.  (Although it does create some confusion the first day of school every year.)  I have a VERY energetic German Shepard mix, Phoebe, who keeps me on my toes all the time but is the light of my life.  While not in school you'll usually find me watching hockey, walking Phoebe or with my head buried in a book.  I also love to go hiking on vacations and have seen some beautiful places around this state.  I love teaching and can't imagine doing anything else for a career.
