This year marks my 22nd year of teaching in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools. I've taught 2nd through 5th grade. I'm thrilled to teach the computer class and join the specials team at Stellar Elementary School.
I believe learning should engage a child's mind and heart. Technology skills incorporate a child's mind through problem solving and programming, while giving student's a vehicle for creating projects that engage their heart through self expression and connection to their community. Students will learn computer skills, basic programming, and how to be a responsible digital citizen.
When I'm not teaching, you will find me watching my younger son play percussion in Legacy High School's marching band and my older son run at Western State University Cross Country meets. You may also find me going on a walk with my husband, Mike and our dog, Duke. I enjoy cooking, exercising, and singing. My family loves to travel, work with the Boy Scouts of America, and attend my concerts when I sing with the Colorado Symphony Chorus.
I look forward to another great year working with students, parents, and the caring staff at Stellar Elementary.
