Welcome to 1st grade at Vanderhoof! Vanderhoof is a wonderful community of learners that I have been a part of for more than 15 years! I feel honored to be part of such a skilled and caring staff! I am passionate about teaching and I truly care about my students and their families! Building relationships with my students and strong partnerships with parents is very important to me. I look forward to working together to support your child as they learn and grow this year! At Vanderhoof, we value relationships and strive to be our personal best academically, socially and emotionally!
I was born in Santa Monica, CA and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA which makes me a huge Steeler Fan! I currently live in Littleton, CO. I am married with two children. My daughter is 20 and my son is 18. I love to cook, exercise, hike, bike, and travel. I truly enjoy spending time with my friends and my family!
Although I’ve taught Kindergarten through 6th grade, 1st grade is my favorite by far! First grade is a magical year where children grow and change tremendously! I can’t wait to be part of your child’s most exciting year of school!
