Degrees and Certifications:
I have been a teacher for many years, having taught first, third, and fourth grades, as well as being an interventionist/reading teacher.
I was born and raised in Minnesota, with long and very cold winters. I love the daily sunshine here in Colorado, as well as mild winter temps! Living in a variety of states (Minnesota, Indiana, Mississippi, Colorado) has been a unique experience. My family also has lived in the country of Latvia (a former Soviet Union satellite nation) for 5 months.
I am married and have 2 adult children. I also have 2 cats. My hobbies include bird watching, reading, sewing and traveling.
