Hello Rocky Mountain Elementary Family,
I am excited to be a Title 1 Para Class Assistant for the awesome Kindergarten team this year!
A little bit about me...I am proud to be a 3rd generation Colorado native. I grew up in Arvada and went to the University of Colorado at Boulder for my BA degree in Psychology and my teaching certificate, as well as my MA degree in Teacher Education in Second Language Acquisition. I taught for 28 years in the Denver Public Schools as a 1st & 2nd Grade Bilingual Teacher. Then I taught for 2 years in Adams 14 (Commerce City) as a 2nd & 3rd Grade Biliteracy Teacher. I also taught for 1 year as an English Language Development (ELD) 6th-8th Grade Teacher at the International School at Thornton Middle right here in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools.
I am married to Dave, and we have two children and a sweet dog. Our daughter Stephanie (9th Grade) is an artist and just started high school. Our son Luke (7th Grade) is in middle school and enjoys soccer and skiing. Our dog Stella is a little Red Heeler mix and she loves taking walks and chasing balls. As a family, we enjoy skiing, camping, biking watching movies and traveling.
I am excited to be working at Rocky Mountain Elementary this year! GO RAMS!
