This year marks my 13th year in education, all in DPS. I have been a 3-5th grade classroom teacher and have now been a Senior Team Lead and reading interventionist for 6 years. I received my undergrad in Broadcast news from the University of Colorado at Boulder and my Masters in Experiential Education from UCD. I love encouraging students to discover their passions and build their confidence in themselves. I also LOVE to bring learning to life. When we connect our academic learning to the real world, it helps us all see why it matters and how we can make a difference in our world!
