Hello! Welcome to Maplewood's Library! I am very excited to be a part of Maplewood Elementary!
I began my teaching career in 1999 at Jefferson Elementary after graduating from UNC. I started as the technology teacher, but when a 5th grade teaching position opened, I jumped at the chance to teach the grade that was my favorite as a child! I returned to UNC a few years later for a Master's in Reading. I also had the unique opportunity to be the administrative intern for a year while I took some education leadership classes at UNC. I decided to return to teaching for the 2010-2011 school year when Maplewood became an elementary school. At the end of the 2015-2016 school year, I had the opportunity to move into Maplewood's Library. I jumped at the chance to share my love of reading with all of the kids at Maplewood.
I have lived in Greeley since I was in 2nd grade. I attended Shawsheen Elementary, Franklin Middle School, Heath Junior High, and Greeley Central. I am a proud member of Greeley Central's class of '91.
I live in Greeley with my three dogs (Stallone, Jefferson, and Brok) and my two cats (Tisha and Hosana). I enjoy spending time with friends and family on the weekends. I also love to read a good book!
