A couple of my favorite things about teaching art at the elementary level are being able to watch children grow and develop over the course of years and seeing children's creativity take flight as their skills are nurtured. When I am not in school, I enjoy photography, travel, painting, reading, and walking my dog. I have 4 grown daughters who all live in Denver and twin granddaughters!

My degree is in Elementary Education, and I received my teaching license in both elementary education and middle school Math & English. After living two years in Japan for my husband's job, we moved back to Colorado and hopped right into the SkyView community, where I worked as a substitute teacher for two years before taking on a new role as an English Language Development teacher here. I LOVE working with small groups of kiddos who speak different languages at home and so enjoy developing relationships with them as I support them linguistically. I am married to my husband, Justin, and we have 3 daughters & 2 loving pups. We enjoy living out of the city in the foothills of Larkspur!

Further, I believe and fully support the vision and mission of SkyView. I serve the community alongside some of the most amazing educators in the field. I am humbled by the opportunity to lead the SkyView community in the role of Head of Schools. My educational journey led me to SkyView in 2012. I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 1992 with a degree in English. I continued my education at Bethany College in Scotts Valley, California, in 1994, where I completed graduate school for Educator Licensing in Leadership and Teaching and Curriculum and Instruction. I believe to my core we are educating the future to change the world. As educators, I believe we are called to meet students where they are and develop them holistically. To that end, I am committed to ensuring we prioritize the academic, emotional, social, physical, and mental development of the students in our charge.
