This is my third year in DPS and fifth year as a teacher. Before coming to Castro, I was a paraprofessional in a special needs classroom, taught second grade for two years in Parker, CO, and am now teaching second grade at Castro. I was born in Michigan and have lived in Texas, Missouri, Florida, and California. Now, I live in Lakewood with my rescue pup, Summer who is one year old. Although I am not a Colorado native, I enjoy everything Colorado has to offer – from biking, hiking, and festivals in the summer to snowboarding and snowshoeing in the winter. I teach kickboxing in the summer time and love to spend my evenings after school reading or learning how to cook. I am always up for learning something new! I am so excited to be a part of the second grade team!
