Welcome to 6th Grade and I am so excited to begin this journey with you! I’ll be teaching Social Studies and one Science class. This is my fifteenth year of teaching and my second year at Thunder Vista. It was great to get back to teaching at Thunder Vista after I took a few years off to be home with my daughters. Thunder Vista is my home away from home! I grew up in Maryland and graduated from Salisbury University (part of the University of Maryland) in 2001. I have also lived in Arizona, Texas, and am glad to call Colorado our permanent home after three years. My husband, Michael, and I love to travel and spend time with our daughters and rescue puppy, Daisy. I love gardening, photography, hiking, and vacation planning. I cannot wait to meet you and am looking forward to a great year!
