Degrees and Certifications:
7th Grade Math and World History
After attending Colorado State as a first-generation college student, I received a BS in Applied Mathematics/Secondary Education with a minor in English Literature in 1989, and a Master of Arts in Gifted Education from Regis University in 2012. I’m amazed to be starting my 28th year of teaching! I have taught 5th – 9th grade regular and advanced math, English, reading, and science; I have also taught special education and gifted math, as well as reading intervention classes. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented or CAGT, a group of educators dedicated to promoting gifted education in Colorado. I have throroughly enjoyed helping each of my previous classes find something to love about what we are learning, and am looking forward to getting to know the Silver Falcons of Christa McAuliffe STEM Academy.
