I moved to Colorado from New Hampshire ten years ago to attend Fort Lewis College where I received my bachelors in elementary education. Aside from the schooling I fell in love with all Durango had to offer. I am a very active person who loves the outdoors. I spend my free time hiking, skiing, fly fishing, paddle boarding, and enjoying all the beauties of nature. This will be my 7th year teaching and 4th year at Juniper. I believe in a classroom culture that fosters exploration and creativity where everyone is encouraged and celebrated. We all have a story and I am excited to add this chapter to mine! I am passionate about creating a fun and safe environment for the students to learn in, and I am looking forward to having a great year full of learning and discoveries with everyone!
