I am originally from a small town in Northern Colorado but lived all over during my husband's Naval Career. We moved back to Colorado in 2008. My husband Shawn retired after 23 years in the Navy and works for the Colorado State Patrol as a Port of Entry Officer. We have been married for 27 years and have two children. Ashley is 23 and is a 4th grade teacher in Sandy, UT and Levi is 15 and in the 11th grade at Rampart High School.
I taught preschool for 9 years before receiving my Teaching degree from Colorado Christian University. I taught 1st grade, 3rd grade and was a Reading/Math Interventionist before coming to DVE seven years ago. I taught the AM/PM Kindergarten classes for one year, 2nd grade for 7 years and now work as the school's MTSS Coordinator. When I am not at school I enjoy reading, running, shopping and rock climbing.
