With a passion for writing, I majored in English at the University of Colorado and three years later returned to earn my teaching license in secondary education. I grew up in Colorado and can't imagine living anywhere else because I really enjoy the weather, the natural beauty, and the many recreational activities. I also enjoy attending sporting events with my family especially Colorado Rockies and Denver Nuggets games! I have been teaching 6th grade Language Arts at Challenger for the past three years. I love working with our students to improve their writing skills and increase their understanding and appreciation of Language Arts.
