It is such a privilege being at Swigert. Being a part of this school brings me such joy as I get to see children involved in all kinds of incredible learning. I truly believe our school offers our students a broader perspective and deeper understanding of the world than a traditional program.
Coming back marks the start of my 15th year in education. I have my BA in English Literature and my MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado, and another license in administrator from the University of Denver. I have served in DPS as a teacher, literacy specialist, curriculum developer and administrator. I love administration because of the opportunities to work with all of the members of our community, and I really think we’re one of the strongest teams of leaders, educators and families in Denver.
Personally, I am from Colorado. I grew up here, tried to leave for a while after college, but was immediately drawn back to the sunshine and lifestyle of this amazing place. I love to hike, ski, read, travel and cook with my husband, Ben, and our twins, Finn and Kate.
