I am thrilled to be joining the Soaring Heights crew as a second grade teacher. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Elementary Education. This will be my seventh year of teaching with experience in both Kindergarten and First Grade. I love teaching primary learners! I strive to make sure all of my students feel known and loved every day. Our class will be a safe place to try new things and make mistakes, and I will guide my students to be problem solvers both socially and academically. 

I have been married to my sweet husband, Michael, for five years and we just welcomed our daughter, Holly, into the world in April. We love to take advantage of the Colorado outdoors by going on walks with our dog Clyde and spending time in the mountains when we can. We are a pretty active family as both my husband and I were collegiate athletes, but we also love to relax and spend quality time with extended family. 

It is an honor to care for and teach your children. I look forward to establishing strong relationships and a great year of growth!
