This is my seventh year teaching, and my second at Northglenn Middle School. I come from Aurora Public Schools, where I taught 8th Grade Language Arts for 5 years. At NGMS will be teaching 8th Grade Social Studies and Language Arts. I am an Adams 12 graduate (Thornton High School class of 2001!), and graduated from the University of Colorado with my BA in Art History 2006 and MA in Linguistically Diverse Education in 2014. I became a teacher because I love to learn and help others learn as well. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with my husband Nick, son Archer, and our two dogs.
