I feel very fortunate being part of the Mountain Range family. I love teaching and learning and consider myself a life-long learner. I am a graduate of the University of Colorado where I received my Bachelor’s in English. I continued at CU to finish the licensure program in Secondary Education. I completed my Masters in Education with an emphasis in English as a Second Language at the University of Northern Colorado and also earned my EdS degree from Arkansas State University. While my formal education has been essential, I have also gained valuable knowledge through personal experiences. Some highlights include seeing Julius Caesar performed at The Globe Theater, visiting the British Library, and touring The Custom House in Salem. My passion for teaching extends beyond the classroom. I sponsor the literary magazine, Trail Mix, where you can submit your own writing. I am a supporter of students in and out of the classroom and look forward to seeing you at various events throughout the year.
