I am so excited to begin my seventh year teaching Second grade at Ryan Elementary! We have such an outstanding staff and community and I’m so honored to be a part of it!

As a Colorado native, I have lived in many places along the Front Range. I attended Conifer High School and earned my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder. When I decided to go into education, I received my teaching license from Metropolitan State University of Denver. More recently, I received my ESL Endorsement from Regis University.

Currently, I live in Denver and enjoy riding my bike to fun restaurants with my amazing husband. Also, when I’m not in the classroom, I love doing yoga, being outside in our beautiful Colorado mountains, and spending time with my wonderful family.

I am very excited to be teaching here at Ryan Elementary! I started as a student at Ryan, and I am so happy to return as a 2nd grade teacher. I am very grateful to be part of such a dedicated and supportive community. This will be my sixth year teaching 2nd grade and I am thrilled to be working alongside such a wonderful team of educators.

My journey to become a teacher started at the University of Colorado Denver where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I continued my passion for education by going back a second time to receive my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Aside from teaching, I spend my time with my boyfriend, my family, and my energetic lab retriever. Being a Colorado Native, I love experiencing what our beautiful state has to offer. I enjoy spending time outdoors, going fishing, and attending sports games.

I look forward to another great year in second grade!

I am so happy to be part of second grade team here at Ryan Elementary! I have been at Ryan for four years and I have taught in Kindergarten and Second grade. I am grateful to be part of this amazing community and be able to work with such a wonderful staff.

I was born in Chico, California but moved to Colorado when I was two - so I still consider myself a Colorado Native. I attended CU Boulder to get a degree in elementary education and psychology. I recently graduated from CU Denver with a masters in curriculum and instruction.

I live with my husband (Kyle) and we have a four year old dog (Benya) and a 2 year old little puppy (Xabi). On the weekends we enjoy hiking with our little guys, rock climbing and spending time with our friends and family.

I am excited for a great year and to be able to watch your child grow along the way!
