I am so proud to be a member of the Sabercat family! I have been a Social Studies teacher for 14 years, 11 in high school and 3 in middle school. I moved to Colorado six years ago with my husband (Dan), my 11 year old son (Sean) and our golden retriever (Riley). Since I grew up in nearby Kansas City, every winter my family would come skiing and that's when I fell in love with Colorado. I have many sports allegiances, which I hope you will not hold against me. First and foremost, the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals reign supreme. Second, because my husband is a Bostonian and we lived there for 8 years, comes the Red Sox and the Patriots. On the plus side, I promise not to convert any students to the dark side and it does make for some lively conversations on Monday mornings during the Fall.
I love teaching and I strive to make my classroom and place where kids want to be. I care about the success and well being of every one of my students and will do my best to ensure they achieve greatness in my classroom. I have an open door policy and welcome students and parents to keep an open communication with me on a daily basis. When you send an email, you can expect a response within 24 hours, often sooner (on the weekends, please give me 24-48 hours). I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am so excited for the 2019-20 school year! Go Sabercats!
