Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be a part of the 8th grade team this year and working with your students. I am not originally from Colorado, but I do consider it my home. I hold a Bachelors in Elementary Education and Special Education, a Masters in teaching English to Second Language learners and a Doctorate in K-12 Administration. I have been teaching for 10 years, and this is my fifth year at teaching in a middle school setting. In the past, I taught 4th grade an kindergarten. I would like to share a little about myself. I grew up in Mesa Arizona; I consider the White Mountains to be my home. I moved to Colorado twelve years ago with my family. Prior to moving to Evans, I lived near the white mountains of Arizona near Pinetop/Lakeside. I enjoy exploring the mountains and local four wheeling trails, camping, and spending time with my family. I have three children, a son-in law and a grandson who mare my world. I have been married for 24 years and love every minute of it. I love learning and seeing the excitement in a child's eye. I am very excited to start the school year and even more excited to meet my new students and families. Feel free to contact me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I am happy to help!
