I am a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado with my degree in Special Education and have my Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from GCU. I love to use these degrees to push into general education classrooms in order to ensure that all students can access the curriculum. I am currently starting my third year at Silver Hills as a learning specialist. I am going to be working with 6th, 7th and 8th graders this year. In my time off, I love to travel and explore new cultures. Another passion of mine is photography. I enjoy taking pictures of landscapes and nature, especially while I am traveling. I also love to read, just about every genre of book, but especially historical fiction.
