This will be my third year(ish) here at Westlake Middle School. The (ish) is kind of a fun story if you are interested, and like how stories often complete circles.
I will be teaching seventh and eighth grade drama, Reading and Creative Writing. I am very excited about all the classes I will be teaching this year, and creating a wonderful third year of Drama Club with, Mrs Martinez, Mrs. Anderson and our awesomely talented and creative students.
I am a Colorado native and a District 12 and CU Boulder alumni. My BFA is in Theater and my MA is in literacy. I love to learn, and can get pretty geeky excited when classes go really well. I have taught since 1993. I have also been blessed to be able to work at the Colorado and Utah Shakespearean Festivals.
My own kids are starting 6th and 7th grade this year, and my husband will be starting a new postiton as the art teacher at Northfield High School. Together we built a pond in our backyard over the summer. We acquired 4 new fish friends a turtle who thinks he is a hermit. I'm already looking forward to planning and grading out back by the bubbling brook.
The very best way to connect with me is through email. As a traveling teacher, it is so much easier to access. I am very excited to be working with all of you, and am looking forward to a great year!
