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, my two children, Adam and Allie, our two dogs, Lucy and Bentley, and of course our Tegu lizard, Bruce.
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.
