Hello! I am the full time learning specialist at Vivian. This is my 2nd year here and my 2nd year of teaching! I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my degree in special education while playing division 1 soccer (Go Bears!). Shortly after I graduated, I moved toThailand for 6 months to teach English. Some of my favorite hobbies are hiking, biking, reading, and playing soccer. Tonya Landis (Learning Specialist) Email:

Kids energize me!  It's a good thing because I am a mom of four with three of my children being triplets. My triplets are 13 and my oldest is 17. When I am not teaching I enjoy camping, hiking, cooking, gardening (really anything outdoors) and crafting.  I share my time between two schools as a Learning Specialist. I love being at Vivian because of the caring staff and wonderful students.
