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 hope to travel more when the opportunity arises but for now I just want to become a member of the RMHS family and share my life experiences with my students.
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.
I am currently teaching Spanish 2 but have also taught Spanish 1.
As a new teacher to Rocky, I am still discovering what the Lobo Way means to me. So far from my short time here I know it involves a strong sense of community and support.
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!
