I received my undergrad from the University of Northern Colorado in 1995. I then went back to school to obtain my teaching license and officially began my teaching career in the Cherry Creek School District in January of 1999. At that time, I looped in 4th & 5th grades. That just means that I was lucky enough to teach the same group of kiddos for two years in a row! In 2002, I moved to Fort Collins and started working at Beattie Elementary in 6th grade. After spending four years there, I moved to 3rd grade and have stayed put ever since. :) In 2008, I journeyed back to school to receive my Masters degree in Curriculum & Instruction.
I love the open atmosphere! It feels very family-oriented because we don't have walls between us or doors to shut each other out.
I love the small school feel! When I walk down the hall, often times I know or at least recognize every student I pass by.
I love working with Mrs. Brook! We laugh A LOT with our students and work hard to maintain a positive and fun learning environment.
I love to do anything with my family! My husband and I have three beautiful daughters. They keep us very busy with afterschool activities! During our free time, we love to go to movies, play outside, and go on family vacations.
