I am entering my 8th year of teaching here at Northridge Elementary. I started out in 2ndgrade as a long-term substitute teacher. Following that, I was hired as a kindergarten teacher and have been here ever since! I love every single second of it!
My Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education is from the University of Northern Colorado and I have my emphasis in English as a Second Language. Prior to teaching at Northridge, I have experience in Denver Public Schools, Weld County Schools, and Cherry Creek Schools. I absolutely love Northridge and can’t wait for your child and family to fall in love with our school too!
When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy going to the mountains, long sunset walks, baking, reading, drinking Starbucks, and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I just celebrated our five year anniversary. We got married in Estes Park, one of my favorite mountain towns! I have been in Colorado most of my life but my husband and I recently built a house in Castle Rock and love the area.
My passion in life is teaching! The elementary classroom is a place where I learn something new everyday. I will create a place where your child will feel safe and comfortable to take risks, to grow socially, emotionally, and academically. We will become a family of learners!
