Welcome to 8th grade math! This is my first year here at Westlake, and I couldn’t be more excited! I started my teaching career in Jeffco Schools, but after nine years there, I decided I wanted to teach in the district that my kids attended. I have now been teaching in Adams 12 schools for six years.
I am originally from Holdrege, NE which is where my family remains. (Yes, I’m a huge Husker fan!) I graduated from Bellevue University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and started my career as business banker at Wells Fargo Bank in Denver. It didn’t take long for me to realize it wasn’t my passion. Eventually I went back to school to obtain my teacher’s license. I graduated from CCU in Lakewood with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am married and have two boys, Blake (9th grade) and Drew (6th grade). In my spare time I love to workout, watch my boys play hockey, and spend time with our dog, Miles. I am looking forward to a fabulous year of learning with a great group of 8th graders. I love learning with students and watching the “light bulb come on” when they realize they’ve just solved a problem. I believe in working together to help students be successful. Please feel free to contact me anytime. The best way to reach me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s going to be an awesome year!
