4th Grade Teacher

Welcome to our Fourth Grade Family!  I am so excited to share this journey with you and your child! 

Please allow me to formally introduce myself to you and your family.  I grew up in Kansas City as the baby of five kids, or as my Dad fondly refers to me as, “The runt of the litter”.  Growing up, I spent three months every summer falling in love with the mountains in Snowmass, Colorado.  Therefore, it was no surprise to my family when I decided to move to Crested Butte, in 1993, to study English and Elementary Education at Western State College. 

After graduation, I moved to Kansas City in 1998 to teach Kindergarten for two years before my husband, James, and I moved to England in 2000.  I studied at Cambridge University where I received my K-12 teaching certification.  I taught sixth through twelfth-grade Citizenship, English, and British History in a British school for six years.

Since we moved back to Crested Butte in 2009, I have worked at CBCS as a special education aide, first-grade teacher, and for the last four years, I have taught fourth grade!  I must say, I absolutely LOVE teaching fourth grade!  

I recently earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the American College of Education.  I am so excited to implement new technologies and up-to-date strategies in our classroom.  I feel extremely grateful for the opportunity to expand my knowledge of research-based techniques whilst modeling for my students (and my own children) my desire and dedication to lifelong learning.

My son is in seventh grade and my daughter is in fifth.  I love watching them grow and learn at their own level and pace.  I truly believe that all children learn in their own unique style and at the pace that is correct for them.  I will do everything I can to ensure your child is challenged at an appropriate level while still loving the learning process.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for sharing your children with me.
