Degrees and Certifications:
Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. In Virginia I received my bachelor's degree, as well as my master's degree in education. My teaching journey began in 2012 in Virginia. In 2017 I moved to New Orleans, Louisiana and continued my teaching career. Stepping out of my comfort zone, I grew tremendously as a teacher in New Orleans. During my time in New Orleans, I welcomed two daughters into the world. Let the good times roll, as they say in NOLA. My daughters have brought a new insight to teaching that I never had before. After 3 years in New Orleans, life brought me to Northern Colorado. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to continue my career at Bella teaching 4th grade. I love spending time with my family and watching my daughters grow into their own, as well as traveling to visit my family in Virginia and New York City. Although the East Coast is considered 'home', I am excited to be in Northern Colorado continuing to serve my new community, my new home.
