Biography

As a 5th grade teacher I have had the unique opportunity to share my talents and experience from past careers with students for a career-focused preparatory experience that readies them for their next educational venture. I have a Master of Arts in Education with a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Endorsement. I am a former Boettcher Teacher Resident and a career changer. My past jobs in television news, corporate communications, and website design prepared me well for my time in the classroom. I share these career experiences with students and make job skills connections for all learning targets in my classroom. I’m also a mom to two teenage boys, who also attend Douglas County schools. This is my third year at SVA.

I love to read, write, play guitar and drums, hike, rock climb, travel, and teach.
