About Me
What is your education background and experience?: 

 I earned my BA in English with teaching credentials from Colorado State University.  I completed my MA in Reading at the University of Northern Colorado where I am also currently an adjunct professor.  I taught a myriad of writing and reading classes at Fort Lupton High School before joining the staff at Webber Middle School. I have also coached football, rugby, and track and field.

What do you love most about teaching?: 

I love to see how students' abilities grow over time.  I really enjoy helping students become cognizant of that growth and the way this understanding leads to more student self-confidence.  I hope I help students realize that consistent effort produces positive results.   

What are your favorite hobbies or interests outside of school?: 

I hunt and fish as often as I can, usually with family and/or friends.  I am a fly fishing guide for Estes Angler in the summertime.  I read often, write some, and video games are a guilty indulgence.  I also play the drums.

About My Classroom: 

My classroom is a safe place where laughing is encouraged and learning is paramount.  I try to offer student choice as often as is prudent.  I believe in the I do, we do, you do model of instruction, but I strive to empower students by encouraging them to take responsibility for their own education.
