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 and digital media 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. I love the responsibilty of supporting your child's development as a persevering and skilled thinker and caring and cared-for classmate.
I grew up in southwestern Colorado as well as California, Kansas and South Carolina. 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, chai, true crime podcasts, my Denver Public Library branch, old school R&B and travel.
