Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! This is my 21st year teaching, all in 3rd and 4th grade. This will be my 17th year at Ryan! I grew up in Louisville,CO, and attended UNC where I played softball and got my degree in Psychology and Elementary Education. I completed my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at the University of Northern Colorado and completed my English as a Second Language Endorsement in 2010. My husband teaches Physical Education in the Boulder Valley School District. We have 4 kids. Grady is 12, Laine is 10, Ava is 8 and Anna is 5. Oliver, our golden retriever, really misses all the attention he used to get before we had so many kids. We are sports fans, love to play at parks, and like to spend time with our family.

I am so fortunate to be a third grade teacher at Ryan Elementary. I have taught 21 years, all of which have been here at Ryan. I love the community at Ryan and the wonderful staff that I work with. I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado. I left Pueblo to continue my education at The University of Northern Colorado and finished my teaching licensure at Metro State College of Denver. After that, I went on to pursue my Masters Degree in Instructional Technology from Regis University. I enjoy watching and playing sports, spending time with family and friends and traveling to new places whenever we have the opportunity. I am so glad to be your child's teacher and hope that I can inspire them to be their best and teach them a love for learning!

I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade at Ryan Elementary. This is my 3rd year teaching, my second year at Ryan. Last year I taught 5th grade and then the year before I taught a 3rd/ 4th grade class. I graduated in 2020 with my Master's in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State University of Denver. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my two kitties Freyja and Odin. I enjoy reading and working out with friends at F45. I am so glad to be your child's teacher! I look forward to making memories and helping facilitate a love of learning!
