Welcome to 7th grade math!
I am thrilled to join the staff at The International School at Thornton Middle! This is my 19th year teaching in Adams 12. I taught 7th and 8th grade math at STEM Lab for the last 2 years and I taught 6th-8th math and science at Hulstrom K-8 for 10 years before that. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction (math and science) both from the University of Colorado - Boulder. In 2011 I also completed an Educational Leadership Program (The Ritchie Program for School Leaders) at the University of Denver.
I am a Colorado native although I am the only one in my family who does not ski. My husband and I have two children; a daughter who is a sophomore in college and a son who is a freshman in high school. As a family we love to travel, garden, and spend lots of time in the mountains. In my alone time I love reading, photography (both taking photos and scrapbooking them), baking, and drinking tea.
It is my core belief that everyone can learn math to the highest level they choose! I am excited share the beauty, creativity, and usefulness of math with a new group of students and I know it’s going to be a great year!
