About Me

I am a native Coloradan and have been married to my husband, Steve, for 25 years. I have two children; Mark, who just finished 6 years in the Air Force and is starting school in the spring for criminal justice, and Lisa, who attends Metropolitan State University studying Human Development. I enjoy spending time with my family, as well as camping, reading and gardening. I have also started exploring genealogy and have learned all sorts of interesting things about my family that I didn't know!
Education is my second career. I originally started in Business Marketing, until I realized my real passion was in education. I have been teaching for nine years; most of those in 6th grade. I thoroughly enjoy working with 6th graders; watching them grow. History is a passion of mine. In fact, I had the opportunity, last summer,  to take participate in a forum in  Virginia., where I was able to "walk in the footsteps" of Thomas Jefferson, and his ideas of liberty.  I am looking forward to working with your child this year and watching them discover their own love of history.
