I am very excited to return again at Maplewood as a Third Grade teacher this year! I have been with Third Grade since Fall of 2019 and started as an Interventionist at Maplewood in 2017. In Spring of 2017, I was a summa cum laude graduate with an Interdisciplinary Studies: Elementary Education bachelors degree from the University of Northern Colorado with Teacher Licensure. While attending UNC, I spent my practicum semester at Maplewood with third grade. I quickly learned to love the students, staff, and community around Maplewood and am so happy to be a part of the amazing Maplewood community again this year! I have also taught educational camps at the Denver Zoo for about ten years so I love to talk about animals. I am also a big Disney fan and enjoy bringing elements of the theme parks and movies into the classroom. For a number of reasons, my life motto is "Just Keep Swimming", and my classroom motto is "Just Keep Reading, Reading, Reading!" I consider myself a lifelong learner. I am District 6.
I am excited to have your scholar in our class this year! I am eager to support and work together to meet the needs of all learners.
ALL students should believe:
- “I belong in this academic community.”
- "My ability and competency grow with effort.“
- "I can succeed at this."
- "This work has value for me"
- “It’s okay to not know, but its not okay to not try my best.”
- “I can do hard things.”
- “We are Maplewood Mustangs!”
M-A-P-L-E-W-O-O-D, Go Mustangs!
