This is my very first year as a teacher, and I am so thrilled to be a part of the Douglass Valley Team.  I am looking forward to working with your children this year and getting to know the families and the community better. I recently graduated from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, but I was born and raised in Colorado Springs so I am so glad to be back in my home state. Now that I am back home, I can pick up my favorite hobbies, including hiking, swimming, photography, and cooking. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am always looking for the best way to serve my students. This is going to be a wonderful year, thank you for being a part of it!
