I am a Colorado native, having grown up in Louisville. I have been teaching at Creekside since 2005 - two years as a literacy tutor/teacher and kindergarten since 2007. Both of my amazing children attended Creekside (K-5th) and went to kindergarten in Room 1! My daughter, Alex, attends CU Boulder. My son, Noah, attends Fairview. My wonderful husband, David, runs his own IT business, Free Range Geeks, here in Boulder. My favorite things about Creekside are the diversity and family-feel of the school. I have a BA in psychology, an elementary teaching license, a Master's in Literacy and Curriculum Development, and a Master's in Multicultural Education - all from CU Boulder. I love teaching kindergarten because I get to explore, learn, and laugh every day with my students. For fun, I like to read, hike in the mountains, travel, play board games, create projects with all kinds of art materials, drink tea, and eat ice cream!
