I am super excited to be working at the best middle school ever! I can't wait to meet everyone; we're going to have an awesome year! This is my ninth year teaching and fourth year at Challenger. Previously I taught science at Foothills and High Plains Elementary and 6th grade before that in Brighton, CO. I earned a B.A. in sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and an M.A. degree in elementary education from the University of Northern Colorado. I love teaching social studies and science, especially outdoor education. In addition to teaching, I have coached soccer at the JV and middle school levels, volleyball, softball and anything else to stay involved. I am a graduate of District 20, so I feel extremely fortunate to be teaching in the best district! I also love to camp, hike, fish, hunt and do anything else in the great Colorado outdoors! My husband and I have the coolest son, Stokes (3 years old) and daughter, Kendall (one year old) who will soon become a big brother/sister!
