About Me
Why do you love being a teacher?: 
I love being an occupational therapist supporting students in their participation and learning at school and home. My greatest passion is helping students discover their strengths and build their self-esteem.
What do you like to do outside of school?: 

Spending time with family is always the best! My husband and I have two girls who are making their way through college and internships. Outside of school, I enjoy jogging, reading, and going to see new movies. During the summer months, my family and I love to hike in the mountains. In the winter, we trade our hiking boots for snowshoes and hit the trails again. Growing up in Florida, I at times miss the water so you may also see me at Horsetooth Reservoir or at Pacific Beach in California. 

What is a favorite quote of yours?: 

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.”
― Thích Nhất Hạnh

My Classroom
About My Classroom: 

I love working with students in their classrooms, out at recess, and in specials classes. I especially enjoy teaming with students, teachers and families to bring new ideas and solutions to improve student learning and growth.
