Having grown up in this area, my goal was always to come back here and raise my family. We have strong connections to this community, and I wanted my kids to experience the same kind of upbringing I had. I went to school in Norwood from kindergarten through high school. After that, I moved to Greeley for college at the University of Northern Colorado, where I got my teaching degree. I taught for my first two years in Pierce, Co. Later, my husband and I decided to move to Strasburg, his hometown. I taught for four years in Kiowa, Co, and then took a break to be a stay-at-home mom. I have taught almost every elementary grade level as well as ELL classes in the upper grades. This will be my 12th year teaching.
The idea of moving back had crossed our minds, and when the opportunity to teach second grade opened up, we saw it as a sign. I'm really excited to be back and be part of the community again. My family consists of three wonderful kids—two boys and a girl. We all enjoy outdoor activities like hunting and camping. In my free time, I love helping out on our family ranch and taking photos for people.
