Short Personal Description:
I am a Colorado native and a NoCo native as well and went to school through PSD. I grew up in Bellvue where my family raised chickens and had horses, both full sized and miniature. Bellvue is still home to me even though I no longer living there but it will forever be my oasis. I have been fortunate enough to travel outside of the U.S. to El Salvador where I spent half of a summer cooking, eating, and experiencing life in a third world country in the town of San Rafael Obrajuelos before returning to the states to get my masters. I now have made it a goal to travel with my coleagues and students every summer to different countries around the world such as Costa Rica, Panama, Spain, France and Italy. I hope to travel even more when the opportunity arises but for now I am happy to be a member of the RMHS family and share my life experiences with my students.
Educational and Professional Background:
I earned my BA in 2013 at C.S.U. in Spanish and then continued on to earn my MA in Spanish at C.S.U. as well. I taught at C.S.U. while working on my degree for 2 years.
Courses currently teaching at Rocky and previous courses taught at Rocky:
I am currently teaching Spanish 2 and 3 but have also taught Spanish 1.
What does the Lobo Way mean to me?:
For me the Lobo Way is people finding themselves and celebrating who they are in a supportive community.
Interest & Hobbies:
I absolutely love escaping to the mountains, working in my yard and taking care of my little farm with all of my goats and chickens. I have a strong passion for food and all that it entails (mostly the cooking and the eating). If I am caught inside it is probably because I am eating, reading, or sleeping although I prefer to do all of that outside as well!
