I am very excited for another year of teaching 5th Grade as part of the wonderful Swigert community. I grew up outside of Boston and I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Ohio Wesleyan University, where I played on the varsity women’s soccer and lacrosse teams. Later, I received a M.A. in Elementary Education from Oregon State University.
I originally moved to Colorado more than 20 years ago to take advantage of the outdoor activities here and lived and worked for two years in Winter Park. Prior to joining the Swigert team, I taught in the Jefferson County schools, most recently at Bergen Valley Elementary School in Evergreen. I am passionate about teaching reading and literacy and I am also certified as a Gifted and Talented teacher. I live in Park Hill with my wonderful husband, our four kids (all four attending Denver East High School this year) and our three dogs.
