As a daughter of two teachers, I have dreamed of teaching my entire life. I grew up in Southern California and moved to Colorado in 1998. I have taught in Los Angeles county, Washington state, Chicago before moving to Colorado. Since 2007 I have been teaching in Poudre Schools. I have the privilege of teaching students from around the globe the English language, as well as American culture. I am a mother of three beautiful children and am married to a fantastic man. I love to read, run, bike and garden.
