About Me
Bachelors of Arts - Utah State University Masters Degree - Educational Leadership - Colorado State University
What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
I enjoy the countless opportunities each day to work directly with students, families, and staff members. The favorite parts of my job are watching students actively engage in learning and collaborating with teachers. I believe there is no greater calling than teaching, and I feel blessed to be part of a profession that celebrates thinking, learning, persistence and collaboration.
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
I love any Skippyjon Jones book by Judy Schachner, Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs by Tomie de Paola and Frindle by Andrew Clements.
I’m a proud native of Cheyenne, Wyoming. After graduating from high school, I spent the next 12 years living in the beautiful state of Utah. My family and I have called the amazing town of Windsor, Colorado our home for the past 16 years. Each of these places hold a spot near and dear to my heart.
I love spending time with family and friends. My favorite outdoor activities include walking my dog, biking, and spending time by the water. I also enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, shopping and cheering on the Denver Broncos!
A little more about me: 
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 26 years. We have two young adult sons.
