Every year I wonder if it’s possible to love my new group of students as much as my last. To my amazement, in the ten years I’ve been at Hulstrom the answer to that has been a resounding YES! One of the greatest joys in my job is discovering who my students are and celebrating the things that make them unique. I view my role as a facilitator and a cheerleader, and trust me; nothing is as satisfying as witnessing the moment the light bulb comes on! I believe we are more than just a group of students and a teacher. We are a community, and I’m dedicated to doing all I can to ensure that each child thrives both academically and socially. On a more personal note, I’m a Colorado native and enjoy all the beauty and recreation this state offers. Our family loves spending time hiking and camping in the mountains together. My two sons are grown now, but I’m happy to say they still enjoy spending time with mom and dad! I’m blessed to have shared life’s ups and downs for the past 32 years with a great guy who supports me 100% in my calling as a teacher. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring and I look forward to partnering with you!
