My role as a Rivendell teacher is to build on the skills that my students enter class knowing, so that they are ready to move on to middle school. I work to help the kids to feel confident academically and socially to leave Rivendell.

As a lifelong learner myself, I continually find ways to reach students through up-to-date best practice approaches. I work hard to build relationships with each student, so they feel comfortable to advocate for themselves. I believe children learn best when they are challenged and are interested in the subject they are studying.

Family is very important to me. My son and daughter both went to Rivendell. I also have two wonderful stepdaughters and five grandchildren. My roots are in Iowa, but I consider Colorado my true home. I enjoy all kinds of bike riding, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, reading, and traveling.
