A little bit about me:
Hi families! I am the Half-Day Pre-K Teacher at The Academy. This is my third year teaching Pre-Kindergarten. I have my degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Early Childhood from Illinois State University. I moved to Denver about 6 years ago and enjoy everything this beautiful state has to offer. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, reading, snowboarding, camping, hiking and cooking.
I am so lucky to come to school every day and work with such a great group of kids. I became a teacher because as I spent time working in schools I saw the positive effect I could have on a childs life. I could share a kind word or a gentle hug for the child who misses his mom. The joy of finally seeing a child learn their colors, after months of review is an amazing experience. All of this is at the heart of teaching. I can see a need, whether it is emotional, social, or academic and then fill that need. I want to work with students so that they can reach their full potential. I want to see them grow into independent learners.
