Degrees and Certifications:
This is going to be my sixth consecutive year here at Highland, which is a very happy thing for me! I love teaching in our district! Math is my favorite thing to teach, and I absolutely love that I get to teach it all day! My hope is to share my love for math with my students, and watch as they learn to love it, too! I am looking forward to great things this year!
Bailey, my yellow lab mix, and I are quite a pair at home. She makes me laugh, frustrates me, brings me joy, drives me crazy, but constantly keeps me entertained. I think I do the same for her - although lately I feel like mostly I bore her to tears rather than keep her entertained. We go for walks and watch Rockies games together, until the season ends. Then we start counting days until spring training begins again. We kind of like to sit on our front porch together and watch sunsets, too. I love to travel whenever I can, especially to the east coast where I'm from. I love the beaches on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
My own children are grown ups now, and I am so proud of each of them. They are the best things I've ever done! My oldest, Erin, is a nurse. She is married to Matthew and they have 3 beautiful daughters - Brenna, Makenna, and Emilia. My son, Ryan, is the next oldest, and he is a pilot! Yay for "mom's flight benefits"! He is married to Nicole. My youngest, Jaime, works in the investigations department for her town's police department, and she is married to John. We do lots of fun things together: trips to the beach, family game nights, french toast breakfasts (my mom's famous recipe), Rockies games, all kinds of 5ks (walking for me, please).
Together, let's make fourth grade math fun this year!
