It has been my honor to be a teacher of elementary age children for over a decade. Although I’ve had other careers, I’ve recognized education as my bliss, and have found my home here at Riffenburgh.
Einstein once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” This has been my true purpose ever since I decided to become a teacher.
My family; my husband, Torrey, and my own kids, Eli and Briery, are excited to share this learning journey with you.
I love my job. Everyday I have the privilege to spend my days watching your kiddos grow and learn.
I love books!
I grew up here in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was born in Washington D.C., and have family in Nebraska and Kansas.
I enjoy watching movies, skiing, and being with my family.
