Hi there! I am so excited to be working at Prairie Heights again this year as the GT Specialist!
A bit about me first. I am a Colorado native, growing up in Monte Vista, a smaller community in Southern CO. I graduated with a class of 68 students from Monte Vista High School back in 1999. After that, I made the trek north, and came to Greeley to attend college at UNC. I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelors of Science in Human Rehabilitative Services, a mouthful, I know. After that, I always found myself working in different positions that allowed me to work with children. In 2007, I decided I needed to change my path and make a career out of teacher. I completed my Masters of Education through the University of Phoenix online in 2009. In those tow years, I had my first child and worked as a Kindergarten Readiness teacher at a childcare center in Windsor.
At an early age, I knew teacher was where life would lead. I just had to spend some time deciding just how that would look for me. In my teaching career that has spanned 11 years now, I have served many different roles: GT Specialist, Kindergarten teacher, 5th grade teacher, and a science teacher for an alternative middle/high school program here in Greeley.
I have been fortunate enough to work with amazing individuals who all taught me great things, and have had the honor of working with hundreds of amazing students who give me hope daily! I reside in Greeley with my husband of 16 years, our two children, and two very active big lap dogs. We love life in Colorado, and I couldn't be more fortunate to work for an amazing district. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to send me a quick email.
