Hello! I am excited to start my 15th year teaching and my first year at Thornton Middle School and in Adams 12. I was an elementary teacher for 11 years and taught grades 1-6. Two years ago, I made the move to middle school and taught 6th Grade ELA. I have two Masters of Education, one in Literacy and one in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners. In my free time I enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking or in my garden, reading, traveling and spending time with my family. I have two daughters, one who will be a freshman at Legacy High School and one who will be a junior at the University of Northern Colorado. I am excited to join the English Language Development team. I look forward to a great year!
