I love to read, garden, hike, camp, attend outdoor concerts, and go trail riding in the mountains with my husband on our two horses. We have raised two amazing children who are now both married, and living happily in Montana.

I made the decision to pursue a teaching career after becoming certified as a Montessori teacher and opening my own pre-school. I graduated in 1993 from the University of Montana. That year, I was given a unique opportunity to begin my teaching career at an International School in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia teaching 4th grade. After returning home, I was fortunate enough to spend the next several years teaching 5th grade in Columbia Falls, Montana.  

We moved to Colorado in the year 2000 where I was offered my first teaching position with the St. Vrain Valley School District. I taught four years at Loma Linda Elementary as a K-5th grade computer lab specialist and 3rd-5th grade Gifted & Talented teacher.  I spent the next six years teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at Trail Ridge Middle School.  In 2011, I was hired as part of the Design Team to open Red Hawk Elementary School, where I taught 4th and 5th grade for seven years. 

After 26 years of teaching, I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Soaring Heights PK-8 School community where I will most certainly continue to learn and grow in my profession.
