This year will be my seventh year at Northglenn Middle School. I have my Bachelor's in History and Secondary Education from CU Denver and my Masters in Linguistically Diverse Education from CU Boulder. When I am not teaching ELD, I am spending time with my husband John and our chocolate lab Gunner. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the mountains, loud concerts, and reading. I am a Colorado native who does not know how to ski or snowboard, so when it is a cold day I am watching movies with a mug of hot chocolate. Once the sun comes out I am always looking for an excuse to get outside. I also love the geeky stuff like Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, and Star Wars. My goal every year is to share what I love and help build an excitement for learning.
