I'm excited to be joining the STEM Highlands Ranch Social Studies department this year! I have been a teacher for 16 years and my career has been pretty diverse. I have experience teaching elementary school as a 5th and 6th grade classroom teacher. I taught Art for almost a decade, and have most recently been teaching 6th-8th grade Social Studies. I'm really delighted to have the opportunity this year to work with 6th and 7th grade students at STEM on some innovative and creative Social Studies lessons!
Outside of school, I'm the mother of three STEM students. Our family likes to camp, hike, and ski. I love to garden and was very excited to get a plot in the Lone Tree Community Garden this summer. My children are competitive archers, and I am a certified archery coach.
