Hello! I am excited to be teaching third grade again this year at Hulstrom. I grew up in Lakewood, CO and then I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2002. I later earned a Master’s degree in Special Education—Gifted, Talented and Creative Education from Arkansas State University. This is my 12th year teaching at Hulstrom- all but one in third grade. I love working at our school and being part of a such a supportive community of amazing parents, students, and colleagues! My passion is creating a classroom environment that nurtures and challenges students. I hope to help my students develop into lifelong learners who value learning and education. Outside of school I love spending time with my family, including my husband, and our two daughters, Kiera (9) and Madelyn (4).
