About Me:

  • I have been in Jeffco for nine years in Jeffco, six of these at Vivian. This is my first year as classroom teacher.
  • Some of my favorite books are:
    • ! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld
    • Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld
    • Nightmare in my Closet by Mercer Meyer
    • My Mom’s the Best by Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley
  • When I am not at Vivian, I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, including fly fishing and playing volleyball, but also many indoor activities such as knitting, cooking, and baking.
  • I love the whole sense of community at Vivian, where regular kids can grow up in a world where being with people that have special needs is no big deal, and they are even kind of awesome to hang out with!
