This is my eleventh year in education. Seven of those years I taught fourth and fifth grade. However, for the last four years, I've served as Technology Integration Specialist/Digital Literacy Coach. A Digital Literacy Coach helps teachers and students use technology effectively and safely. Currently, I serve both Stellar Elementary School and Coronado Hills Elementary. Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a research scientist studying the SARS respiratory virus as well as several animal viruses.
When not at school, I enjoy reading, writing, travel and especially photography. Once, when I was a teacher ranger at Mesa Verde National Park, I took 11,000 pictures in about 2 months’ time. I also spend time with my two crazy dogs Max and Jake. Max is a border collie mix and Jake is a very high energy black-lab/Australian Cattle Dog mix.
I'm thankful to be at two amazing schools!
