I'm so excited to work with the staff and students at Stellar Elementary! I love teaching and working with both children and adult learners. Over the past 16 years I have taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades as well as literacy intervention and place a strong emphasis on social emotional well-being and whole child education. As a life-long learner I hold a BS in Parks, Recreation and Outdoor Education, a MS in Elementary Education, and regularly attend professional workshops. After beginning my teaching career in New York City public schools I moved to the beautiful mountains of Colorado to live the dream! When I'm not teaching I enjoy hiking, skiing, baking, reading, eating, and playing with my two incredible girls and my dedicated husband Theo.
