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 APS 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, fourth and second grade here at Beattie. This will be my 12th year teaching and I am so excited to be teaching our wonderful first graders again!
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 and Weston. As a family, we love to spend time outside hiking and playing in this beautiful state of ours as well as play lots of music together! In my free time you can find me taking pictures and learning about aromatherapy.
