After graduating with a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2010, I moved into the mountains of Colorado to immerse myself in outdoor education. Literally teaching out of a backpack. During those several years, I witnessed the power of learning when students are directly immersed in the natural world. My desire for education ignited like a wildfire.
My time in outdoor education allowed for many formative life-altering experiences such as living out of a hammock for a summer, creating primitive survival skills camps, and truly experiencing the daily rhythms of our planet. I later decided to further my path in education. I returned to CU where I received my Post-BA Teaching License in 2016.
While teaching at Red Hawk, I will be participating in the PIE program pursuing my Masters in Literacy through CU. I look forward to growing as an educator with the creative students, brilliant staff, and devoted community of Red Hawk. Outside of school, my time is spent exploring colorful Colorado alongside my beautiful partner Robyn with our two canine companions Beamer and Begonia.
