I graduated from the University of South Florida in 1986 with a BA in Elementary Education. I earned my Gifted Certification in 1987 from St. Thomas University. I have taught Preschool- 6th Grade as well as Gifted education over my 20 years in the classroom. I have taught in Miami, Tampa, Denver, New York and Fort Collins. (Researching and implementing the lastest research based ideas and best practices is one of my obesessions!)
There are so many things to love about Beattie. In all of my experience, this is by far the warmest, most caring place! I LOVE coming to work every day. Our students are amazing and I so enjoy walking with them on their educational journey.
My husband and I have two wonderful kids. Our 20 year old son is beginning graduate school, studying Computer Science Engineering, at CU Boulder. Our 24 year old daughter is currently living and working in New Haven, Connecticut. My hobbies/interests include: hanging out with our 6 chickens, reading, creating new vegetarian dishes and trying to see as many movies as possible.
