I am the English Language Development (ELD) Coordinator and teacher at Thornton Middle School. I 've been teaching in Adams 12 Five Star Schools for the past 25 years. I started at Niver Creek Middle School teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. Then, I moved to Shadow Ridge Middle School and taught 7th grade Social Studies before moving into ELD. This past year I came to Thornton Middle School where I have enjoyed teaching 6th, 7th and 8th grade Newcomers. I love learning from my students and from my wonderful team members. I hope to be a teacher for a very long time.
