I’m so thrilled to be teaching first grade at Swigert! I’m a Florida native who has happily called Colorado home since 2013. I live in Denver with my fiancé, Marc, and our sweet German Shepard mix, Cato. You can find the three of us hiking and camping, and the two of us at a concert at Red Rocks or on a scenic drive through the mountains. In my spare time I like to bake, hop on my yoga mat, and travel. My favorite places I’ve visited are Paris, Yosemite National Park and Brașov, Romania. Feel free to ask me about that last one!
I’m currently working towards an MA in Education through the University of Colorado Denver. The focus of my master’s is my passion for literacy. I’m a lover of words and enjoy getting lost in a good book. My hope for this year and every year is to cultivate a love of reading and writing in your children. I can’t wait for the first of many years at Swigert to begin!
