Health & Physical Education
Teachers & Staff
Hello! I am excited to be joining the McAuliffe team this year. I grew up in Evansville, Indiana and moved to Denver in 2017. I studied economics and history as an undergrad at the University of Southern Indiana and completed my MA in coaching and physical education at Ball State University. I came to Denver, in part, for the active lifestyle Colorado offers.
Prior to McAullife, I taught middle school social studies for seven years and have coached high school basketball for ten years, mostly in Indiana. I am a pretty serious basketball fan (college and NBA), and spend my free time fly fishing, hiking, or reading.
I love being in middle school and having the opportunity to be a positive force in students’ lives. In the summers, I travel as much as I can and have been fortunate enough to visit places like Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat.
