Short Personal Description:
I have been teaching vocal music in Colorado since January 2002, but have been at Rocky Mountain High School since the fall of 2012. I live in Fort Collins with my husband, Christopher, our daughter, Allie, and our three dogs, Chance, Charlie, and Bentley. Our son, Adam, attends the University of North Dakota pursuing a degree in Aeronautical Sciences.
Educational and Professional Background:
I graduated cum laude from Colorado State University in December 2001 with a degree in music education. From there, I began my teaching career at Estes Park Middle School and High School. In the fall of 2005, I began a new job in the Thompson School District where I taught elementary music and high school choir. After discovering that I most definitely prefer teaching secondary music, I was very pleased to be hired at Lesher Middle School for the 2006-2007 school year where I remained until transferring to Rocky in 2012. I received my masters degree in conducting from Colorado State University in December 2011.
Interest & Hobbies:
Two of my favorite activities include reading a good book and trying new recipes for my family's enjoyment. I love to entertain in my home, but rarely find the time to do so! There is nothing better than supporting my children with their activities-lacrosse, volleyball and music. We also enjoy boating and camping, as well as traveling to new places and pursuing new adventures.
