I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Special Education from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in 1984. My teaching career began at Robert G. Weiland School in 1984 and I moved to Aurora Public Schools when students with significant needs were welcomed into the public school system in 1990. In 1994, my family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where I taught at two elementary schools. We returned to Colorado in 2001, and I taught at Jefferson High School until 2017. Last school year, I worked as an Itinerant teacher for Douglas County Public Schools; working at Chaparral High School and Sage Canyon Elementary. The district has opted to discontinue the SSN Itinerant position, so I found myself looking for a new school to call home. I am thrilled to have been given an opportunity to join the Frontier Valley Family.
I have two grown sons who are products of Douglas County School District, they are my pride and joy. We have two terrible dogs, a bulloxer and a beagle, who are loved beyond reason. I enjoy doing crafts, reading and traveling. I am sorry to say that I am a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and look forward to arguing with all of you Bronco’s fans!!
