I am a graduate of Fort Collins High School and went on to attend the Universtiy of Northern Colorado where I earned my teaching degree. I began my teaching career for Aurora Public Schools teaching fourth grade and Kindergarten. During my six years in Aurora Public Schools I became a Literacy Demonstration Classroom as well as took several courses on music and movement in the classroom! I love to keep learning and growing as a teacher every year! In 2013, my family and I had the wonderful opportunity to move back to Fort Collins where I began teaching at Beattie! I have taught first and fourth grade here at Beattie and am now loving teaching our wonderful second graders!
I love the strong community here at Beattie! The staff, students, and parents are all working so hard to create a positive and happy learning environment!
I have been married to my husband Martin since 2009. We met while both playing the violin in the Fort Collins High School orchestra! We have two beautiful children, Everdeen, who is 5, and Weston who was born in May! As a family we love to spend time outside in this beautiful state of ours as well as play lots of music together!
