In my first year here at SkyView you can find me in all corners of the school. I am a part time paraprofessional for third grade and substitute teacher all other days. Most days you can find me in elementary, I stop in at middle school every once in a while. For two months starting at the end of February I am Mrs. Wiley’s long term sub in first grade! I love the face of joy students get when they see me randomly in the hall, and I strive for the moments when a light bulb goes off in a students mind when they really grasp the understanding of something.

When I’m not at SkyView you can find me coaching club volleyball and other sports, hanging out with family or spending time with my cat.

I went to college and graduate school in NYC for film and worked as a film editor for a few years before getting the opportunity to teach ESL in Japan. While there, I fell in love with teaching and upon returning to the States got my Master’s degree in Education in NYC. I have been working as a special education teacher at an elementary school in Manhattan for several years before recently finding myself back in Colorado. I love camping, reading, cooking, and traveling, and am looking forward to being a part of the SVA community!

It is my joy to share the Spanish language and the culture of those who speak it with SkyView students while making language learning meaningful and engaging. When not with students, I enjoy hiking in the mountains, making music and spending time with my family!
