About Me
What is your education background and experience?: 

I am from Michigan's Upper Peninsula and attended college at the University of Michigan where I received my Bachelor's Degree in History.  Following graduation, I moved to Steamboat Springs where I worked in Soda Creek Elementary School as a mentor through AmeriCorps and Partners Mentoring Youth.  After three years in Steamboat, I spent a year and half volunteering in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania as the Director of a primary school called the O'Brien School for the Maasai.  Eventually, I ended up in Fort Collins where I worked for another AmeriCorps project in Greeley, serving at Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy.  Then, I worked for BASE Camp as a Site Director at Tavelli Elementary and O'Dea Elementary.  I began working at Webber Middle School mid-way through the 2017-2018 school year.  Most of my work has been with elementary school students, which is why I'm thrilled to be working with primarily sixth grade students this year - I look forward to helping these students transition into middle school and support them in their academics!

What do you love most about teaching?: 

The things I love most about working with children include:

  • Seeing students' smiling faces each day!
  • Being a positive influence and role model.
  • Building connections with students.
  • Supporting student growth.
  • Enabling students to discover healthy interests and pursue them with passion.
What are your favorite hobbies or interests outside of school?: 

When I'm not working, I enjoy being outside - particularly camping, hiking, running, and participating in basically any sports!  I also like reading, listening to music (my husband is a musician), and scrapbooking.  In my spare time, I volunteer with Partners Mentoring Youth and am a Board Member for the O'Brien School for the Maasai and serve as their Volunteer Program Coordinator.
