About Me
Why do you love being a teacher?: 
I love helping students learn and grow. Every day is fun at Zach Elementary! Working with small reading groups and assisting teachers in the classroom is rewarding. I enjoy reading with kids and helping them choose "just right" books. Ask me about my favorite books and tell me about yours!
What do you like to do outside of school?: 

I love spending time with family and friends, especially when we laugh together! My husband, my 3 grown kids and my son-in-law are all CSU Rams, but I went to college in Nebraska. I enjoy outdoor activities and living in Colorado - I can't wait for fall every year and get excited when we get our first snow. I have lived in our colorful state since I was 2 years old. Hiking, snowshoeing, shopping, reading, walking our dog and traveling are some of my favorite things to do. I really like road trips and visiting our National Parks, too. Movie, sports or game nights with my family --- and a giant bowl of popcorn is about the best thing in the world!

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

I have worked in PSD for 18 years. I started as a certified substitute teacher and taught for 7 years at many schools here in Fort Collins. Then I joined the staff as an instructional/ELA paraprofessional at Johnson Elementary and this is my ninth year at Zach Elementary.
