I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with an Elementary Education degree with minor in Math. My first teaching job was in Kansas City, Kansas. Where I spent one year in the 5th grade classroom. The next nine years were spent teaching 6th grade math. While teaching I earned two Masters degrees, one in curriculum and instruction and the other in administration. Before moving out to Colorado I was a Curriculum Specialist Administrator.
I met my husband, a Longmont native, in Kansas City and we decided that we preferred Colorado and being close to family, to Kansas City. My first job here in Erie was at Erie Elementary as a full time 5th grade teacher. Although I loved my time at Erie, my husband and I decided that it would be better for our family to work part time. Now I have the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD teaching the advanced accelerated 5th/6th math class.
My husband and I currently live in Longmont, with our son Paul, our puppy KC (Kansas City) and our unfriendly cat Abbey.
