What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work I love being outdoors! I love to go for hikes, go skiing, and go camping! I also workout at jazzercise. I love to travel with my family, and my favorite country I have visited is Costa Rica. In the fall I can be found cheering on the Broncos and Nuggets.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up right next door to Fort Collins in Loveland. I plan to stay in Colorado forever.
Why do you love being a teacher at Putnam?
I am living my dream, because I have wanted to be a teacher since I was 7 years old. I love being a teacher at Putnam because I love watching my students grow SO much every year. I love creating a community full of PRIDE and working with kids who are excited to learn about our world! My favorite part is getting to know and make relationships with each of my students and help them show their creativity in their work.
Anything special about your classroom?
In my classroom we believe in supporting each other as a community and using growth mindset to believe in ourselves and never give up. 4th graders get to learn about Colorado history, the solar system, electricity, and fossils!
