I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2009. After earning my Bachelor's degree, I went on to earn my Master of Arts Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Colorado Christian University. Upon earning my Master's degree, I had the opportunity to teach at a private IB International School in Shenyang, China. I taught in China for three years before returning home and finding the perfect fit at Beattie Elementary.
Beattie is a very welcoming and positive community. I love the fact that all the teachers work together to create examples of positive collaborative relationships and instill a love of learning in all students.
I love coaching, swimming, mountain biking, and spending time with family. I coach swimming at Fort Collins High School, and I am the head coach for the SCCA summer league swim team.
