My heart is filled with gratitude for the opportunity to continue my teaching journey at Thunder Vista. I feel absolutely blessed to be a Buffalo! I have been a teacher in this district for 12 years. The last three years, I have served as an Instructional Coach. I’m eager to get back into the classroom and surround myself with the laughter, tolerance and wisdom of little learners. Before coaching at Rocky Mountain Elementary, I made a educational-home at Glacier Peak Elementary for nine years teaching in the primary grades. I love teaching and feel lucky everyday to call this noble profession mine.
Besides my passion for education, I am in love with the nature and beauty of Colorado. The gorgeous surroundings are almost as breathtaking as my precious girls--Laila and Emi. All my spare time is spent with my little ladies and husband. We enjoy family walks, trips to the park, and going to the movies. I find personal joy in yoga, hiking, reading, and sampling my husband’s amazing cooking.
The Dalai Lama speaks my truth about teaching profoundly in this quote, “When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.” I promise everyday to truly see your child, and honor not only their thinking but unique spirit as well. I can’t wait to push the limits of inquiry and discovery together, as we learn and grown as a classroom community. I’m so excited to meet my new students and families. Second grade is absolutely the best!!! We are going to have a fantastic year!
