I may not be a Colorado native, but I sure love calling it home. Growing up, I moved many times but graduated both high school and college in Colorado. I finished CU Boulder with degrees in both English and Psychology; teaching took me back to Colorado Springs for two years after graduation, but I have happily been at Dakota Ridge since 2013. My daughter was born 9/27/2017, and my life has been even better ever since. My husband and I have two dogs who love being outside, camping, and playing Frisbee with us. Admittedly, I wish I had more time for choice novels; I find myself re-reading the texts I teach instead of picking up a new book. I do of course enjoy reading when I can, but honestly, my husband and I enjoy our Netflix as well. Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl, and to this day, not much has changed. Welcome to my class!
