About Me
Full Day Kindergarten Teacher
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Consumer and Family Studies and a minor in Human Development and Family studies from Colorado State University. I earned my Elementary Education teacher certification from Black Hills State University.
What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
I absolutely adore working with young children and introducing them to the exciting world of school and lifelong learning. I love watching each child learn, grow, and succeed. There is never a dull day in K! There is always new learning, excitement, love, and a lot of 5-year-old humor. I have taught Kindergarten at Rice since it opened its doors. I cannot imagine working anywhere else. Rice is a great place to work! The staff is outgoing and I treasure my supportive and wonderful Kindergarten team.
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
Laura Numeroff, Beverly Cleary, Kevin Henkes, Mo Willems
Fort Collins (although I’ve lived in 6 other states along the way).
I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a super supportive husband, two beautiful daughters (former Rice students), and a big fluffy Golden Retriever. We enjoy going to our neighborhood lake, traveling/road trips, or staying home and hanging out as a family.
A little more about me: 
I also enjoy reading, watching movies, or cooking with my family.
