About Me

What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
The thrill of facilitating children to discover and celebrate their many gifts, exposing them to the many knowledge opportunities available, dialoging about perspectives, and being challenged to provide the best learning community possible are my missions. Learning is not something imparted in our classroom; learning is discovered! Children quickly discover my favorite word is “WHY”? Together we seek to attain the answers to our many questions, to make lasting connections, and above all else develop as thinkers, problem solvers, and citizens. In the end, the learning will extend beyond the mere academics into a holistic perspective of our world. I love being 10 years old all day with your children, therefore, humor is essential as well.
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
Beverly Cleary Ramona and Beezus, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys series, and My Side of the Mountain.
Fort Collins, Colorado
I appreciate the simple pleasures of watching the changes of the seasons, a stimulating hike, snowshoe, or ski in the outdoors with my trusty companion and Oaklie, fly-fishing and camping. Galloping through high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers on my horse, Jemima, with Oaklie, and spending quality time with friends are a few passions of mine.
