As a five year old just beginning kindergarten, I knew my career path. I was in Miss Heaton’s kindergarten class, reading in the loft and watching my teacher in action. I dreamed of being like Miss Heaton from that day on. Throughout my Adams 12 education I was lucky to have had many committed and powerful teachers who helped push and inspire me in becoming a teacher. As a committed graduate from Adams 12 Five Star Schools I continued my education at Metro State and my Master's through the University of the Rockies.
I have taught grades K-3 here at Leroy Elementary and was part of the founding staff as we made the transition into an IB World School. The journey has been amazing and being a part of this community only enhances the experience.
I have two rambunctious boys who light up my world, a sweet dog, and a grumpy cat. I enjoy every family moment we have and create to it's fullest. We enjoy frequent park visits, museums, ATVing, hiking, soccer, and anything that involves the outdoors. In my personal time I play soccer, go for long, quiet runs, read, and plan adventures for friend get togethers.
I am excited to deepen my role at Leroy Elementary, An IB World School.
