Why I enjoy teaching: 

I love seeing students experience an AHA! moment. Nothing is more satisfying than having a student enter my classroom in August, terrified of math, and walk out in May with math being their favorite subject all because they finally get it!

Favorite Books: 

My favorite books include the Harry Potter series, Lisa Gardner, and James Patterson. Growing up, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was an all time favorite!

Interests & Hobbies: 

I love softball! I have played since I was 7 years old and have been playing ever since. I have also played fastpitch with the Fort Collins Buckaroos, Poudre High School, and Adams State College. Now I spend a lot of time coaching my daughter, Cora, who is a fastpitch pitcher and also has a love for the game. When I get a chance, I will fly out to Wisconsin to see my son perform in a play. I also squeeze in as much camping and fishing as I possibly can!
