Welcome to 6th grade! I love working with children and 6th grade is my happy place. This is my thirteenth year teaching 6th grade at PCK. Prior to coming here, I taught 5th grade in Englewood for three years, and I taught kindergarten in Westminster for two years. I also taught drama and Shakespeare in Denver for five years. In addition to my classroom responsibilities, I am the school coordinator for the Battle of the Books program and I am the school sponsor for the DCSD Shakespeare Festival. I have a deep commitment to literacy and am passionate about reading. I love sharing my enthusiasm for books with my students.
I am married and have two adult children, and we live here in Parker.
