Teaching is the best job in the world and I thrive to relish every moment of this rewarding profession! I am beginning my 10th year of teaching and I absolutely love being an educator. I am so excited to be a part of the music education program at Thunder Vista P-8 and work hand in hand with caring families and helpful staff that go above and beyond for their students. In addition, I have a master's degree in gifted and talented education and love to incorporate my insightful acquired knowledge into my music classroom. I am from Illinois originally and have lived in Colorado for going on nine years! I love hiking, skiing, softball, the Chicago Cubs, taking adventures around the world with my husband Logan, and my three precious dogs Zoey, Charlie, and Hank. In my spare time, I love to play my guitar and write my own songs. All students may see me buzzing around the school throughout the day and I love getting to know each and every student no matter the grade level. This year is going to be fun and filled with lots of new adventures and achievements as we navigate through this school year. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful school and to get to know my amazing students! Go Buffs!
