What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
There are so many reasons I love working at Rice; we are all here for the kids! The incredible staff is fun, supportive, and experts in their field. Meeting and working with families and students is another reason I absolutely love being a Rice Raptor!
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
So many books, so little time! My favorite children's book include: The Year of Billy Miller, The World According to Humphrey, Charlotte's Web, and any book by Kate DiCamillo. My favorite series is Harry Potter. I used to reserve the book and wait in line at midnight at Barnes & Noble when the newest book be released!
I was born and raised in Goshen, Indiana. I attended Indiana University in Bloomington for college and lived there for 11 years before moving to Fort Collins in 2008.
I love anything that is outdoors or involves animals...if it includes both, I'm definitely in! Every weekend you will find me camping up in Rist Canyon. While I'm camping I enjoy reading, archery, dirt biking, hiking, identifying native plants and animal tracks, and taking loads of photographs. If I'm not up camping, I enjoy riding my bike, playing/hiking with my dog, kayaking, swimming, reading, and spending time with friends.
A little more about me: 
I am so happy to be at Rice starting my twelfth year of teaching! I look forward to meeting and working with each and every student and family throughout the year and many years to come.
