As a recent transplant from rainy Portland, OR, I’m thrilled to be here in sunny Denver and teaching at McAuliffe. Before moving to Portland in 2010, I called Kansas home. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Earth and Space Science Education and my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, both from the University of Kansas. I have 9 years of teaching experience ranging from 6th grade science to high school chemistry and 5 years’ experience with the MYP curriculum. When I’m not teaching, you can probably find me running with my husband and two adorable huskies Juneau and Kylo or exploring nature and snapping pictures of birds.
