About Me
What is your education background and experience?: 

Bachelor's degree from Colorado State (Go Rams!) in Spanish with a minor in English.

Master's degree from the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity.

What do you love most about teaching?: 

What I love about teaching is the opportunity to watch kids grow as learners.  I love seeing a student master something that they thought was hard or impossible when they started.  I love that every day as a teacher is new and different; it is impossible to be bored as an educator!

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

Outside of school, I spend time with my husband and two kids- 14 and 17 years old.  We have season tickets to both CU and CSU football (see education background) so we spend a lot of time cheering.  I love to take long walks, to read, and to read some more!! I also have a quirky hobby of decorating cakes and am always trying some new design idea.

Introduction to world languages

About My Classroom: 

I have the oportunity to spend time with English language learners in other educators' classrooms instead of having my own classroom.  I also get to work one-on-one or in small groups with students which is a great opportunity to see learning and growth with my students.
