Degrees and Certifications:
I have taught the last 18 years here at McAuliffe, 10 years in Kindergarten and the last 8 years in third grade. I enjoy teaching at a great school with wonderful parent support. Before McAuliffe, I taught in schools in Jefferson County and southern California. I have taught Kinder, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades, but my favorite is 3rd! When I'm not teaching, my hobbies include reading, traveling, photography, digital scrapbooking, and shopping.
My husband, Larry, and I have a son, Kyle who graduated from Stanford University a year ago and is now working in Denver, and a dughter, Kirbie, who is a Senior at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. They both went through McAuliffe, Heath MIddle School, and Central High School.
I love teaching and hope to enable, enliven, and encourage each studen to become lifelong learners, to know that they can accomplsih anything, and to know that they are loved.
