I am a 1st grade teacher at Malley Drive Elementary. I have a BA in speech and theater from Adams State College and a MA in literacy from Walden University. I have been teaching in Adams 12 since 1997. I grew up in Adams 12 and attended Cherry Drive Elementary, Northglenn Middle, and Horizon High School. My own children also attend Adams 12 schools. Teaching is my passion. I feel strongly about giving my students a solid foundation that they can build on throughout their academic career.
