I am originally from Arlington Height, IL and moved to Colorado after graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I taught 3rd grade in Winter Park, CO for five years before moving to Denver. While my children were small, I worked as a substitute teacher and completed my Masters in Elementary Literacy and Mathematics. I am fortunate to be one of the founding teachers at Swigert, where I taught 1st grade for five years and helped to develop our IB program. I’m excited to be teaching 3rd grade again this year. Outside of school, I enjoy yoga, biking, skiing, cross country skiing and spending time in the mountains with my husband and our two teenagers.
