I am originally from Springfield, Massachusetts, but I have also lived in Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas and Illinois. I have lived in Colorado for the past 23 years and love all there is to do in Colorado. I raised 5 wonderful children and I have a beautiful granddaughter that will be 3 this year.
This is my 14th year as a Learning Specialist for the Adams 12 Five Star School District and my 4th year at Stellar Elementary. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from Florida State University, with a minor in Psychology. I have advanced education and training in multi-sensory reading, math recovery, culturally and linguistically diverse populations, and children with autism. I am strongly committed to helping all students become lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
My outside activities include running, cooking, gardening and volunteering at the Adams County Animal Shelter. I rescued my pug, Mike, from there last year and he has become an amazing addition to my family.
I'm also very passionate about preserving the environment for future generations, therefore I am crazy about recycling everything that is possible!
