I am originally from Iowa, but I love living in Colorado! I married my high school sweet heart of 10 years this summer! We have 2 dogs named Mia and Aspen and a cat named Charlie. We love hiking, biking, and camping together.
This will be my 6th year teaching. I taught 3rd grade for 4 years and also taught 1 year of 5th grade. I am excited for new adventures in 4th grade!
I have my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of Iowa. Go Hawkeyes! I also have my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governor's University.
I enjoy teaching because every day is different, and each year I get to build new and powerful relationships with students! I enjoying laughing, learning, and growing together. I want every student in my classroom to feel known, valued, and loved!
My favorite children's books are The One and Only Ivan and Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate.
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
