I grew up in a big family in a small town in southern Colorado. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where I majored in Integrative Physiology. After graduating college I moved to Belize, Central America to do mission work and teach in the local high school. It was there that I found my passion for teaching and upon returning home, have been teaching math and science for the past three years to 4th and 5th grade students. I love spending time with my family, playing sports, doing mission work whenever I get the chance, and helping students find their passion in education and life.
