About Me
How many years have you been doing your job? How many years at Riffenburgh?: 

This is my seventh year at Riffenburgh! I love being a part of this school community and am looking forward to a year of learning and fun!  I am so excited to be teaching your Kindergartners this year. So much growth happens during this first year of school and I am honored to be a part of it, to see your kiddos grow academically, emotionally, and socially. Before working at Riffenburgh, I worked in early childhood centers for over 10 years. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children. It is my goal to meet each one of them where they are at and to help them reach their goals. Please do not hesitiate to contact me for any reason.

What I love most about teaching is…: 

That each day is a new day and a new adventure. I love the smiles and hugs that I get every day from my students. I feel the most reward when students achieve their goals. 

My favorite children's book or author is...: 

Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook collection written by Michael Garland. 

My hometown is...: 

I was born in Fort Collins, but spent most of my childhood growing up in Wisconsin and Illinois. My love for the mountains and all that Colorado has to offer, brought me back here to raise my son about 11 years ago.

My Interests & Hobbies include...: 

I love being creative and doing hands on activities, especially with my students. I know that the more engaged they are, the more they will remember the activities and topics that we learn. Outside of school I enjoy seeing movies, spending time outdoors, reading books, and spending time with friends and family.
