I am excited to be beginning my fourth year at The Intertnational School at Thornton Middle. I will be teaching 7th grade Language Arts in the Shire Core. This will be my 24th year in Adams 12. Prior to coming to the International School, I spent four years teaching 5th grade at Hulstrom K-8, and 17 years at Hillcrest Elementary. I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha before moving to Colorado. I have since received masters degrees in both Language Arts and Gifted Education. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and enjoying the outdoors of Colorado! I look forward to an amazing year with my students!
