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

I have had the pleasure of working in education for a little over 5 years now and have had the opportunity to work with students across the spectrum, K-12. I enjoy working with elementary students the most and am thankful to call Riffenburgh home for these two wonderful years! Last year, I was an instructional Paraprofessional working primarily with the First Grade team. 

What I love most about teaching is…: 

I absolutely LOVE helping students set and achieve their goals, both academically and socially. I pride myself on making positive relationships with students that will aid them in their life journeys. 

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

I favorite author would have to be Chris Van Allsburg. I am a huge fan of his books The Polar Express and The Wreck of the Zephyr. 

My hometown is...: 

I am originally from Hinesville, Georgia but moved to Eaton, Colorado in 2001.

My Interests & Hobbies include...: 

I am a total outdoors person! Colorado is so beautiful and provides so many opportunities to get outside and explore! Some of my favorite activities include hiking, road biking, swimming, and hanging out with my fur baby (my dog Chibbs). 

My Classroom
About My Classroom: 

I work with two other lovely ladies in the literacy room and our classroom is focused on making literacy fun and engaging. We like to do a lot of academic games and exploring concepts. Be sure to pop on in and say hi!
