I attended the University of Northern Colorado, where I received a bachelor's in Human Rehabilitation Services and a master's in Early Childhood Special Education. GO BEARS!!. I have been teaching for 10+ years, starting out at Bal Swan Children's Center in Broomfield. This is where I found my love of teaching. I then got a job at Sanborn Elementary, in the St. Vrain School District. I loved my experience in the St. Vrain School District and feel fortunate to have worked there. Then I was lucky enough to find and get a job in PSD. I started out as an early childhood special education teacher and then switched to kindergarten. I love teaching kindergarten and I could not imagine doing anything else. I was once told that if you look at your job as a hobby, than you have the perfect job. This would be my case. I love working at Lopez Elementary and have grown so much as a teacher here.
I am a true native, born and raised in Colorado. The most important thing in my life is my family. Greg and I married in 2012 and have 2 kids, Henry and Evelyn. Actually, we have 4 kids if you count our cats, Kiki and Schnookums. My hobbies/interests include hiking, cross-country skiing, fishing, camping, and about anything else that you can think of that goes with the mountains. I also love to Travel and hangout with my friends and families.
