Learning the importance of leading an active lifestyle while growing up in Raymond, MN is what has driven me over my teaching career. I attended Mankato State University and received my Bachelors Degree in Physical Education with a concentration in Spanish. Before moving to Colorado in 2005, I had the opportunity to teach 1st-3rd grade P.E. on the Fort Irwin Army Post in Southern California, K-8th grade P.E. at the Reid School in Salt Lake City, and 7th & 8th grade P.E. at James Workman Middle School near Palm Springs, California.
Moving to Colorado was one of the best decisions of my life; where I started teaching in St.Vrain at Longmont Estates Elementary. During this time I received my Masters Degree in Health Education / Health Promotion through Mississippi State University. In 2009, I lived out a lifelong dream where i participated in a teacher exchange program and taught in Port Lincoln, South Australia for a year.
I feel all my teaching experiences lead me to a very amazing opportunity to open Red Hawk Elementary in 2011. Teaching Physical Education and Coordinating All School Movement is a true passion of mine and love inspiring my students to be active and live a healthy lifestyle. I really enjoy working with the students, staff and families of Red Hawk Elementary.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two very lively kids. To keep active I enjoy hiking, jogging and walking with our dog.
