I am excited to begin my seventh year as a 5th grade teacher at Bear Creek.  I've been teaching for over 20 years with some of my most memorable years being in Australia where my family and I lived for six years.  Living less than 30 minutes from the ocean was pretty amazing, but nothing truly beats living near our beautiful Rocky Mountains.  I love traveling, cooking, reading, sleeping in and spending time with family and friends.  My favorite people in the world are my husband, Peter, and our two girls, Mallory, who is in her first year of law school and Jillian, who will graduate in December with her degree in education.
