This is my first year at Silver Hills Middle School and my 8th year of teaching! I am originally from a small town in Pennsylvania and attended the University of Michigan for college where I was fortunate enough to be offered a full scholarship to play Field Hockey and be a student athlete at the school. I received my BA in Secondary Education with a concentration in English and Physical Education. Since graduating in 2012 I have lived and taught in 4 different states: I have taught high school english in North Carolina and Massachusetts; physical education in Texas for grades K-8 as well as serving as the head field hockey coach for the high school team; and the last two years I was here in Colorado teaching 8th grade at Aurora Hills Middle School. I am happy to make Silver Hills my new home and am excited for a great school year!
