I am beyond excited to join the dynamic Swigert team to teach kindergarten! I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Kentucky in Lexington. After I graduated, I taught first grade in the Washington DC area for three years. I grew up and lived in the suburbs of DC most of my life and decided I wanted a change of pace and scenery. This summer I relocated to Denver to pursue a Master’s degree in Educational Equity from the University of Colorado. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and hiking with my hound dog, Barkley. It is so exciting to be living in the beautiful city of Denver and to be continuing my career as a primary teacher!
