Welcome to 4th grade!
I am so excited to be at Shawsheen again this year! This is my 8th year here at Shawsheen! I have been in our district my entire teaching career - 30 years! I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades at Jackson and Winograd, as well as served as an Instructional Math Coach for our district. I have learned so much from all the wonderful teachers we have in our district and I am excited to share what I have learned with your children this year!
I have 2 children. My son is 23 years old and recently graduated with his college degree in North Carolina. He just celebrated his 2nd wedding anniversary. I love him and his new wife, Lauren, with all my heart! He and Lauren are expecting their first child, my first grandbaby at the end of September! My 19-year-old daughter got her angel wings July 2021 due to a car accident. This is a heartbreaking event that has affected me deeply. I also have two cats named Sassy and Simon. When I am not at work, I enjoy crafting, listening to audiobooks, watching Netflix, and going to concerts with friends when I can.
I have lived in Colorado all my life. I grew up in Westminster and then moved to Greeley when I attended UNC. My first teaching position landed me here in Greeley and I haven't left! I have my Masters degree in Reading Education from UNC.
I look forward to working beside you this year as we work together with your child.
