TAG and Enrichment

I was born and raised in Southern California and then moved to Flagstaff, AZ to go to college at Northern Arizona University. I graduated with a Bachelors in Science in 1996 and then went back to school to get my teaching certificate. I taught 6th grade in Flagstaff for ten years, and then moved to Colorado with my husband and two daughters in 2009. I have been at Douglass Valley since 2011, teaching 3rd grade, and now TAG and Enrichment. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, running, biking, and skiing with my family. There is so much to see in Colorado, and I love exploring all of its beauty as often as possible!
