Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 4th year as a Scott Star and I am thrilled to be back in second grade team-teaching with the wonderful Mrs. Vanderbush! We are teaching in a split day format where Mrs. Vanderbush will be focusing on literacy in the mornings and I will be focusing on science, social studies and math in the afternoon.
A bit about what paths brought me to Scott. I earned my Bachelors degree in Music Therapy from The University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire in 2007. I then spent several years working with kids with special needs in Chicago and also in Grenada where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer for two years. Upon my return to the States, I went back to school and earned my masters degree from University of Northern Colorado in Elementary Education.
My wonderful family grew by one last December. Kai is such a joy and brings us happiness every day. Hopefully he will be peeking in from time to time to see how the class is doing this year.
