Hello! I am excited to teach 7th grade Language Arts at Westlake Middle School!
I grew up in Westminster, Colorado; therefore, I attended Adams 12 schools growing up, graduating from Horizon High School. I have a B.A. in History from Metropolitan State College of Denver and a Master's Degree from the University of Colorado in Literacy. I love Colorado and try to travel to the mountains often. I also enjoy seeing the world beyond our state and have been to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, just to name a few.
Reading has always been a hobby of mine. I read a variety of books throughout the year. Currently my favorites are The Book Thief by Marcus Zuszac , The Giver by Lois Lowry, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I love to read with students and discuss their favorite books too. I am happy to read any book with students.
I am looking forward to partnering with each student this year, both inside and outside of my classroom, as they continue their education journey.
