I am so pleased to be teaching first grade at Clear Sky Elementary!  I have had the opportunity to teach first through fourth graders during my twenty-one years in the teaching profession.  Each year, I look forward to building new relationships with the children in my class!  Getting to know my students and helping them discover their strengths are opportunities that I truly enjoy. 
   
I graduated from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies and a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.  After several years of teaching early elementary students, I decided to pursue a Master's Degree.  I graduated with a Master's in Education Degree from Grand Canyon University.
    
My husband and I have two children, a college graduate and a freshman.  We enjoy camping, playing games, and traveling together.  We've had a great time learning more about Colorado since moving here twelve years ago.  I love the beautiful scenery and changing seasons.  My favorite hobby is reading, and it is a pleasure to encourage my students to enjoy reading as well!
