Prior to joining the BCD community, I spent 5 years teaching preschool through 2nd grade in the Boulder area. I also spent some time working in a law firm with an emphasis in educational law. I am a Boulder native, and it should come as no surprise that I love to be in the mountains and play outside. You can also find me curled up with a good book or enjoying the company of my friends and family.
Prior to teaching at BCD, I played professional basketball in Europe and coached collegiate basketball at Colorado State University. One of my all-time favorite things to do is play basketball. I was fortunate enough to play collegiate basketball at the University of Colorado, and love to pass on my passion for the game to younger players.
Kindergarten Assistant Teacher
Loyola Marymount University B.A. Elementary Education CU Denver M.A. Human Development and Education
I grew up in Boulder, and have lived here most of my life. I studied Elementary Education at Loyola Marymount University, and recently graduated from CU Denver with a Masters in Human Development and Education. I taught 2nd grade last year, and am thrilled to be a part of the BCD community!
I spent the summer hiking the Colorado Trail, and also enjoy cooking, climbing, and reading!
I have been teaching for over 16 years in both independent and public schools from California to Colorado. I live in Niwot with my husband and three children. My husband and and I spend quite a bit of our free time watching our kids play sports. As a family, we love to hike, walk our two golden retrievers, travel, and go the movies.
In my free time I enjoy running and training for half marathons, reading a good book while drinking coffee, laughing with my family, and practicing my cooking skills. I am enthusiastic and passionate about learning something new and growing with my students each day.
After growing up in a household of teachers and attending a Country Day School from junior kindergarten to twelfth grade, I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be a teacher! I studied education at Colorado College and then landed at Graland Country Day School in Denver, where I pursued my MAT. During my time at Graland I spent time in both kindergarten and first grade. I am thrilled to be teaching second grade at such a wonderful school in beautiful Boulder! Outside of the classroom, you can find me on the ski slopes after I’ve watered my plants and drank mugs of coffee.
My favorite things about living in Boulder are the people, sunshine, and mountains. Prior to teaching at BCD, I taught first grade at Harding Academy in Nashville, Tennessee for six years. Before that I taught in North Ridgeville City Schools in Ohio for five years. When I am not teaching, you can most likely find me spending time outside with my family. I enjoy hiking, exploring, and anything to do with water.
Prior to joining the BCD community, I taught at Hawken School in Cleveland, Ohio for five years, both in kindergarten and third grade, and coached field hockey at various levels. In my free time I enjoy doing many different activities with my husband, including traveling, hiking, attending baseball games (Go, Tribe!), playing tennis, golf, and sand volleyball, and snuggling with our cat, Lottie.
I have taught in the Boulder area for the last 9 years. I am married and have three children; two in high school and one in middle school. In my free time I love to be outside, spend time with my family, cook and read. In the classroom, I get great joy seeing children engaged in their learning and becoming lifelong learners.
I live in Colorado because I love to ski, hike, bike, and to be outside! Cooking is my favorite hobby. I went to The Culinary School of the Rockies for a year-and-a-half program and got to eat, sleep, and breathe cooking!
Prior to coming to BCD, I taught Latin and classics as well as coaching lacrosse, field hockey, and soccer for five years at The Episcopal School of Dallas. I wanted to move to Colorado because I love to hike, bike, camp, and enjoy the great outdoors! I love spending time with my family and traveling as much as possible.
