About Me
About Me: 

After an 11 year career in mortgage lending and finance, I quit to be a stay-at-home mom when my daughter's were little.  During their early school years, I enjoyed volunteering in their classrooms so much that I decided to switch careers and come to school EVERY day too! My husband and I have been married for 27 years and both our girls are now attending college, one at the University of Northern Colorado and the other at Oregon State University!  I've been at Irish Elementary for 12 years, the first 10 years as a para in Early Childhood and just now entering my 2nd year in Integrated Services.

Educational Background: 

B.S. Degree in Finance from The Pennsylvania State University

What do you like best about teaching?: 

I'm able to work with multiple grade levels and I enjoy the variety of students! Each day is different, unpredictable... an opportunity to learn from my kids.

Favorite Books: 

As a young girl I loved The Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Heidi, The Boxcar Children

Later, when my girls were young, I read them Mr. Putter and Tabby, Magic Treehouse, Frog and Toad.

Hobbies & Interests include...: 

I enjoy reading, hiking, attending Volleyball and Basketball games at Rocky, attempting quick DIY projects, and walking with my husband and dog, Faith.

What I like about my school...: 

The variety, passion, laughter, teamwork and shared vision. The feeling of family.
