I am returning to Westgate for my seventh year teaching fifth and sixth grade, and I couldn't be happier. This year, I will get to teach all subjects to my class. My passion is getting kids excited about learning new material through a variety of projects and activities. In my class, I expect hard work and creativity. We are here for students to learn, and it's my job to create an environment where students can engage in authentic learning experiences.
Some of my personal interests are boating & tubing, Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering, quilting/crafting, exploring out in nature, drinking coffee, mythical creatures, and reading. I live in Thornton with my husband, our 12 year old daughter, Charly, and our many pets.
