Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!    


I am looking forward to another amazing year,  I am excited to be back in person and to see all of you!


We have an amazing staff at Scott, and we will make sure your child will have a terrific school year!  This is my 16th year at Scott; however, this is my 23rd year in education.  I have taught many different grade levels, and I am so excited to be co-teaching with so many different teachers! This is an outstanding school, and I ABSOLUTELY love teaching at Scott Elementary School and in District 6!  In fact, I am District 6!  I grew up in Greeley and went to Centennial, Meeker and Monfort for Elementary School.  I went to Brentwood for Middle School, John Evans for Jr. High School,  and I graduated from Greeley West High School.


I have a Bachelors Degree in Social Science with an Elementary Education Emphasis and a Minor in Geography from the University of Northern Colorado.  I also hold a Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado, as well as an endorsement for Linguistically Diverse Education. 


I have a wonderful husband, Ty, and two amazing daughters, Tanner and Taylor. I also have two dogs, Cooper and Odie, and a cat, Jaxx. My family LOVES being outdoors. We enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing.
