Home- Quarter 2

Welcome!
 
I am a lifetime resident of Colorado. I grew up in Arvada and moved to Greeley where I attended the University of Northern Colorado. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Elementary Education.  I also completed my Masters of Reading through UNC in 2013.  The 2021/2022 school year will be my 19th year of teaching.  My experience is in charter schools in first through eighth grades.  I currently reside in Greeley with my husband, 7th grade daughter, dog, cats, and bunny.  I enjoy reading, hunting, and spending time with my friends and family.  I am excited to be back for another year of teaching first grade at FCA!
