My professional roles in elementary and middle schools have allowed me the opportunity to experience life in different settings and cultures across the United States.

I began my career teaching Kindergarten in rural Illinois. My next adventure was in middle and elementary schools in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia.

In my current role, I am the STEM Coordinator at a PK-5th grade school in northern Colorado, where I have the opportunity to collaborate and co-teach weekly lessons with classroom teachers, run our school wide Makerspace, support tech integration, and facilitate staff professional development.

I Believe...

  • In teaching the whole learner through challenging and meaningful lessons.
  • That technology is a tool capable of removing the barriers created by geography, socio economic status, and physical or intellectual abilities.
  • All students can and will learn given effective instruction.
  • In continuous improvement and the reiteration of practices to meet the needs of students, fellow staff members, and the community.
