Welcome to 6th grade math! This is my fourth year at The International School at Thornton Middle but my 28th year teaching. I am originally from Oregon where I taught 6th grade for 13 years. I have also taught high school art in Montana and elementary school in Missouri. I spent nine years teaching 5th grade at Hulstrom K8 School in Northglenn. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Oregon State University. I also earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum Instruction from Portland State University. I am very passionate about teaching and very excited to teach at ISTM!
My husband and I have two boys; a junior in college at UNC and a freshman at CSU. We spend a great deal of time at football, wrestling, swimming and cross country events. The boys also love to camp, hike and hunt which gives me time to read, scrapbook and shop! I'm looking forward to a fantastic year of learning with a great group of 6th graders.
