My interest in entering the teaching profession came at a young age. It was largely due to my own experience as a student where I struggled with learning. When you’re young it can be discouraging when you feel behind. Luckily, I had great teachers that were there to support me and worked with me to set goals for my success. Since then, I have wanted to be that support for all students.

I was born and raised in Colorado and attended Colorado State University (GO RAMS!) graduating with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Afterwards, I worked as an assistant preschool teacher at SkyView Academy for three wonderful years and this past year went back to school to get my license in elementary education.

My favorite parts about teaching are the connections you make with your students and their families and seeing the tremendous growth children make in such a short amount of time.

I enjoy anything that allows me to bring out my creative side, live music, the outdoors, and spending time with my friends and family. I am so excited for this next adventure at PPA.  I can’t wait for this wonderful journey we will all take together this school year!
