I am a homegrown Fort Collins girl...I went to O'Dea, Boltz, and then was part of the first graduating class at the 'new' Fort Collins High School. From there I traveled across town to CSU, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Science (Biology). I had planned to attend medical school, but had a change of heart my junior year. The summer I graduated from CSU, I started a post-baccalaureate program at UNC, where I earned my teaching license and Master's degree in Elementary Education. Because of the varietey of classes I took at CSU, I am highly qualified to teach science, social studies, and language arts at a secondary level...which leads me to where I am today!
I spent the first 12 years of my career at Erwin Middle School, where I taught 6th grade language arts and social studies. This is my first year at Webber, and I am excited to bring my knowledge and skills back to the district where I grew up.
I love the new adventure that every day brings. Every student is a unique being who views the world in a unique way...I love hearing their take on our world!
Right now my world revolves around my own children's interests. I spend every Saturday at the soccer fields, and most days dropping someone off at a practice of some sort! Any time I can spend with my family is a gift, and my most favorite times with them are our annual family vacations. I love to travel and explore new places with them.
8th grade US History, 7th grade World Geography, and 6th grade Skills for Life
It is my expectation that every student feel valued and welcome in my classroom. We learn in a format that allows students to take risks, and learn to think critically about important issues.
