I grew up in Wisconsin and earned a BA in elementary education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I earned my MA in Education and Human Development through the University of Colorado Denver last summer. I moved to Colorado in 2005 and started my teaching career teaching Language Arts at Niver Creek Middle School in Adams 12 Five Star Schools. I then taught 5th grade at Leroy Elementary School for six years. This is my third year at Silver Hills and in Zephyr Core. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy playing with my two young daughters, going to concerts with my husband, and gardening by myself.
