I am very excited to join Frontier Valley Elementary as your newest learning specialist. I most recently worked at the Rocky Mountain School of Expeditionary Learning helping students from kindergarten through 6th grade meet their personal and academic goals. I have previously worked in Cherry Creek School District at Greenwood, Belleview and Red Hawk Ridge Elementary schools. I am looking forward to joining my new “home” district after a recent move to Franktown. Helping students uncover their individual learning style and become successful in areas that seem hard is the best reward that I could ask for as a teacher. I believe passionately that all students can learn and it is my job to help them discover for themselves how to be successful. I am grateful to join the team here at FVE!
I moved from Illinois to Colorado 20 years ago and have never looked back. Our great state captured my heart and is the only place my husband and 2 daughters (13 and 14) call home. We enjoy traveling the US in our motorhome and spending time together during our time off from school. We like to bike ride, hike, horseback ride, go-kart, kayak, and watch a variety of musicals or just sing along. Our house is a busy one with 3 dogs, barn cats, pet rats, fire-bellied toads, fish, and chickens. We are hoping to add some horses soon which has been made possible by our move to Franktown. We really enjoy sharing
space with the wildlife which lives around us in our rural community and feel like we have found our forever home.
