I am excited to be a part of the amazing Stellar team. This is my seventh year at Stellar and I truly love what I do! It has always been my desire to work with children and teach in a classroom setting. Growing up as the daughter of two teachers helped cultivate that desire and love of teaching. I have worked with children of all ages from infants to elementary school. I starting out as a preschool teacher and then moved on to a school-age program in Boulder Valley similar to Stellar's BASE program. I worked as a substitute teacher in the district while earning my Masters in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State University in 2012. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is seeing students grow and succeed. There's nothing better than watching students' light bulbs turn on, seeing them engaged and excited to learn, or encouraging them to meet their personal goals! Teaching is my passion!
Although I was born in San Antonio, Texas, I consider Colorado to be my home. Outside of the classroom I love spending time with my family. I am the proud daugther of two awesome parents, the sister of two great brothers and sister-in-law, and the auntie of the best neice and nephews! When I can, I enjoy reading a good book, hanging out with friends, shopping, and taking my dog Paxtyn for walks and hikes.
