I am a Michigan native and was raised as a Detroit Tigers and Red Wings fan . I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Mathematics from Michigan State University. After my student teaching year, I made the move to Denver and haven’t looked back. I’ve known of my passion for education since I was young and plan to continue growing within this profession as a life-long-learner. I am dedicated to creating an equitable environment for my students, where they feel respected, safe, and confident in their strengths. In my free time I like to read, listen to live music, and enjoy the Colorado sun!
