Hello! To give you a brief introduction to myself, I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. I spent four years in upstate New York earning my undergraduate degree. When I returned to Colorado in 2006 I worked with gifted students through an alternative education program. From there I decided to further pursue education as a career. I spent 2.5 years counseling at National Jewish Health, while going to school to obtain my teaching credentials. Recently I earned my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Arts Integration. Through my perseverance and dedication I succeeded and I am now living my dream of being a teacher. I hope to inspire my students to be creative, develop a love of learning, work diligently, and more importantly never give up on their dreams and goals.
