I received my Undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa ( Go Hawks!!) and I obtained my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Denver. I have experience teaching Preschool, First, Second and Third Grades and I am endorsed in Gifted Education. I come to Beattie from Southmoor Elementary School which had a Magnet Gifted and Talented program where I taught Highly Gifted First and Second Graders in a split classroom.
I really admire Beattie’s strong sense of community. As you enter the doors everyone greets you with a warm, inviting smile and truly takes the time to make you feel welcome! The collaboration amongst the staff is amazing! It is evident that we are all here working diligently together to meet our students needs and give them the best year possible! The students are happy to be at school and excited to learn! I am thrilled and honored to be part of Beattie’s community and proud to call it my second home!
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the beauty of Colorado. We love to go camping and hiking in the mountains! I also enjoy doing yoga and pilates when I am not chasing around my two boys!
