I grew up in Northern California and moved to Colorado in 1993. Since coming to Colorado, I feel as though I have found "home". I originally came to Westlake Middle in 2012 to teach ESL students, and I fell in love with the kids, teaching staff, administrative staff, and administration. There really isn't any other place I'd rather share in the journey than at "the lake". I believe that a strong and solid education can make the very difference in a person's life, and I consider myself truly blessed to spend my time helping students to see themselves as unique individuals who can succeed. I currently teach math extensions classes for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. In addition, I also teach 8th grade ELL students and Reading for Life for 8th grade students.
