About Me

Welcome 5th Grade Families!


I am so excited to be apart of the STEM Highlands Ranch community as a 5th grade teacher! I am a native to Colorado and grew up in the Centennial/Littleton area. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education. My previous experience includes being a middle school technology teacher in Arizona and a 4th grade teacher here in Aurora, Colorado however I have found my home teaching here at STEM. My teaching style is having the students be innovative, hands-on, and collaborative with one another. When I am not in teacher mode, I often find myself going on adventures with my 2 pups or out at the barn spending time with my horse.


Fun Facts:

  • Big Hero 6 is my favorite movie, so much so that one of my dog’s name is Baymax (the other is Pikachu) 
  • I really enjoy watching documentaries about Earth, animals, space, and nutrition
