I love this school and second grade! This is my second year teaching in the distinguished Riverdale Elementary community. I am a career-changer who earned my bachelor's degree in journalism at CU-Boulder and worked in news, digital media and marketing for 12 years. I earned a Master's degree in culturally and linguistically diverse education through the Boettcher Teacher Residency and Adams State University and have taught in Adams 12 for three years. Supporting young scholars’ development as persevering, caring, skilled thinkers is my professional objective.
I grew up in southwestern Colorado as well as California, Kansas and South Carolina and studied in Sweden for a year in college. My photographer husband, sporty fourth-grader son, shelter dog and I live in Denver. My superpower is winning radio contests, and I have a weakness for dark chocolate, true crime podcasts, my Denver Public Library branch, old school R&B and travel.
