I am a Colorado Native and and was lucky to grow up in the same house my parents bought brand new in 1960. I am an Arvada West Graduate and enjoy camping, fishing, reading and spending time with my three amazing children, Emily, 25, who just got a job here at Cresthill teaching Language Arts! I am so proud that she has decided to make teaching her career! My middle son, Topher, is 23 and is working full time with a railroad contractor, building and repairing railroads. My youngest son Jackson is 20 and just started his Junior year at Colorado Mesa University. We love hanging out at the pool or listening to 80's music. I have been teaching for 32 years in elementary, middle and high school; the majority of my years spent at the middle level and with 8th graders. Middle school age children are the BEST OF THE BEST to teach!! They are still so sweet and innocent while they try to identify themselves. Middle Schoolers are one of a kind and I believe that they strive to be lifelong learners with ambition for success. There is no other level I would rather be at.
I am a Colorado State University graduate (GO RAMS!) and have been at Cresthill for 21 years. I have a History degree with both secondary and elementary endorsements so I can teach k-12. I completed my Master's Degree from Regis University in June of 2012 in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your children and having the honor of seeing them grow, learn and be a success! :).
