About Me
Educational Background: 

I have been teaching since 2001 and am excited to be here at Poudre.  I love languages.  I speak Spanish and taught myself French and Portuguese.  My other skill is that I can also read palms.  I teach levels 2 and 3 Spanish.  I am the head boys tennis coach.  Previously, I taught Spanish and History for 18 years at Wellington Middle School.  (Go Eagles!)  I am married with two college age daughters who attended Poudre.  During my free time, I play tennis, telemark ski at Cameron Pass, read, play euchre and hearts, run, row and would like to learn how to play the guitar.  

Biographical Sketch: 

I attended the University of Vermont and received my BA in Spanish and Political Science.  I attended Villanova University School of Law and received my Juris Doctorate in 1993.  I moved to Fort Collins in 1993, clerked for a district court judge and opened my own law practice.  I represented children and decided that I wanted to do more with kids so I became a teacher.
