I have been teaching for over 40 years of my life. I spent several years teaching dance and owning my own dance studio. Upon graduating from Univesity of Northern Colorado with my BA in Elementary Education I moved to Albuquerque where I taught for two years(5th grade). My husband and I returned to Colorado where we have raised our three children(two girls and a boy). I have taught fifth grade, third grade, second grade and have spent several teaching gifted/talented and have served as gifted/talented coordinator. I have spent the last fifteen years of my career homeschooling my three children in first through twelfth grade. Two of my children have graduated from college and my third child is in her second year at UNC. I am a proud Colorado native and grateful to be back in the business of educating children beside my own. I continue to teach dance a few hours a week for a studio in Thornton and spend the rest of my free time playing with our two dogs, singing in church choir and taking spin class at the gym. I am thrilled and honored to be teaching at Cherry Drive Elementary this year. Go Cheetahs!
