Hello - I'm so excited to work with your family this year! I have been teaching in the district for 15 years and am currently in my fourth year teaching at Westlake. I love inspiring students to read and write. I'm a Colorado native and earned a double degree in Journalism and English literature from the University of Colorado. I then earned a master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in teaching reading from the University of Colorado at Denver and my Principal's License from the University of Denver. Before teaching, I was a newspaper reporter.
I'm a mom of an nine-year-old daughter and five-year-old son. They are in school together at Coyote Ridge this year. As a family, we love biking, golf, hockey, college football (Go Buffs!) and spending time at Lake McConaughy. I am an avid runner and CrossFitter and love to read and write (of course.) I'm so blessed to work in the Westlake family and am looking forward to getting to know you.
