I am so excited about working at Swigert! I have been in Denver, CO for the past 7 years now where my career as a teacher began. I taught at Sheridan Public Schools as an Early Childhood Educator for the past 6 years. I enjoy this age group because so many great educational and social connections are beginning to form.
I am originally from Holland, MI. (If you have not heard of the Tulip Festival there, you should look it up! ) I graduated from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI with my BA in Elementary Education. I moved out to Denver for a change and for a budding relationship with my now husband Joel. We have been married for 6 years and have two children Isaac (2.5) and Eli (8 months). While teaching at Sheridan I completed my MA in Early Childhood Education at the University of Colorado at Denver.
When I am not teaching I enjoy being outdoors with my family. I enjoy snowboarding, camping, and hiking. I also love going on road trips, hanging out at the beach (in Michigan or anywhere with palm trees!), going to the movies, and eating frozen yogurt!
