This year marks my 22nd year of teaching middle school ELA in Adams 12, and my 8th year at Hulstrom. I serve as a member of the Colorado Department of Education's Reading, Writing and Communicating Content Specialists, the Adams 12 Middle School ELA Curriculum Design Committee, and both Adams 12 and Hulstrom's Instructional Leadership Teams. I am dedicated to using rich, purposeful, and engaging texts to help students dive deeply into language in order to foster critical analysis, synthesis, and inquiry. Essentially, my goal is to help students use language to better understand both the world and themselves.
I love to garden, read, cook, and bake with my husband and two children (and I like to sew and crochet without them).
