This is my sixth year teaching, but my first at Northglenn Middle School. I am excited to join the NGMS community! 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 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.
