As a passionate educator with an endorsement in Culturally Linguistically Diverse Education (CLDE), I am so excited to be a part of the Cherry Drive community as the English Language Development (ELD) teacher! Originally from California, I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Theatre and Film Studies from UCDavis. Once I moved to Colorado, I worked at the Denver Center of Performing Arts with young actors. This is when I realized how much I loved working with kids, and went back to school at the University of Denver for my Master's in Reading/Writing Curriculum. There I received my Elementary Teaching License with my CLDE endorsement.
Throughout the years following, I worked as a Literacy Interventionist/Site Coordinator for Reading Partners K-3, taught Kindergarten and 4th Grade at Aspen Academy, and am now happily at Cherry Drive! When not working, you can find me riding my bike, reading a good book, writing, or camping in the mountains. I also love to garden and get my hands in the dirt. Cherry Drive is a wonderful community full of amazing students, and I am so grateful to be a part of the team. Please stop by with any questions or just to say hello!
