I was born and raised in Iowa and after graduating with a BA in Elementary Education from the University of Iowa and teaching for a few years, I made the move with my husband to Colorado. I live in Stapleton with my husband and daughter, Lily. I have a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and 16 years of experience teaching middle school students in mathematics. Teaching mathematics is my passion and creating a positive, engaging and challenging learning environment is my goal each day. When I am not teaching you will find me running, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I am excited to be a part of this wonderful community.
