A Little About Myself
This is my 20th year of teaching.  I graduated from Dickinson State University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and received my Masters in Education from Grand Canyon University.  During my teaching career, I have taught Title 1 reading, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.  I started my career near a school in Bailey called Deer Creek Elementary. I was hired by an energetic new principal named Peggy Miller! My husband would have been so proud to see how I have come full circle and to see what a wonderful school I'm in and how I get to spend my days being with children!  Unfortunately, he passed away in 2006.
I love to be with family and friends in my free time.  My hobbies are cooking, photography, working in my greenhouse, and spending time with my dog, Murphy. I adopted him two summers ago and he is a great companion. Before I went into education, my husband and I owned a photography studio in Englewood, CO.  Now I still do photography on the weekends, in the classroom, and in the summer.  In addition, I love to travel anywhere exploring this beautiful world!
I am very fortunate to be a part of the Bergen family and look forward to being a part of your child's education!
