Go Broncos!

          Welcome to 1st Grade!

I have been teaching for 17 years and this will be my 5th year at Bergen. I started teaching 1st grade, then moved to Kindergarten for 12 years. I am so excited for my fourth year back in 1st grade! I live in Evergreen with my wonderful husband, Rich and our 2 cats, Sadie & Skippy Jon Jones.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, camping, hiking, spending time with all of our grandkids (6!), and pretty much just loving living in Colorado! I am also an avid Broncos fan, looking forward to a return trip to the Super Bowl! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s degree in Literacy. I love to work and learn with children and their parents. I believe that we all work together as partners in this adventure we call “school”. My two favorite things about school are children’s laughter and to be able to see the light bulbs click on & hear “Oh, I get it!”.  My classroom is a high-energy, interactive environment where I share my love of learning in a fun, supportive way. I am so fortunate to be in a place where all types of learning are valued and encouraged everyday.

The best way to contact me is through email. You can also leave me a message on my voice-mail. Of course, you can always send a note with your child. However you choose to contact me, please don't hesitate!
