Welcome! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year. Fifth grade is an exciting year not only for academic learning but also for social and emotional growth. This will be a fun and exciting year. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
I am originally from a small town near Lake Huron in Michigan. After graduating from high-school I moved to Boulder where I attended the University of Colorado. My public teaching experience began in 2003 in the state of Arizona. I taught fifth grade as well as eight grade at a K-8 school before returning to Colorado.
My husband Nat and I have two children Josie (16) and Thatcher (14). Together as a family we enjoy the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. In addition to enjoying the outdoors I am passionate about education, health and reading.
I am deeply committed to Vanderhoof, its success and the success of your child.
