Meet Our Fifth Grade Team

Instead of a school supplies list, we ask that families contribute $40 per child to cover the cost of school supplies for the year. This amounts to $10 per quarter and allows teachers to procure materials through our discounted channels. All students need for the new year is a backpack!

I love learning, reading, playing music, cooking, and teaching. I am a Colorado Native just like my parents and this is my 20th year of teaching.  I moved to Colorado Springs 13 years ago. I love animals, spending time with friends, family, and my pets. I believe everyday is a new beginning because you never know if you will have the gift of another day.

I have been teaching for 21 years.  I have taught PE, 5th grade, 7th grade, and 8th grade all subjects.  I have also been a girls coach for basketball, volleyball, and track.  I am from Texas, but have lived in California, Hawaii, and Arkansas.  We love Colorado and hope to be here for a long time.  If I am not teaching you can find me skiing, hiking, camping, or scuba diving with my family.
