 I am so excited to be teaching 5th Grade at Gold Camp this year!! This is my 10th year teaching; my first year in 5th grade. The majority of my career has been in Kindergarten, but I am looking forward to the challenge and fun of teaching a whole new grade at such a wonderful school set in the beautiful Cheyenne Mountain area.

When I am not preparing for class, grading, creating fun classroom items, or shopping for my classroom, I am spending time with my husband and 4 amazing children! Our favorite things are camping, hiking, playing outside, and reading. I definitely get my fill of all these things in the summer and am ready to dive into the school year come August. I look forward to meeting all of our in-coming 5th graders and their families!

Report Cards

A report card is not a judgment of your child's worth as an individual. It does not measure the delight he or she gives, the humor in those young eyes, or the hope for tomorrow. It measures only one aspect of a young life with so much untried potential. After only a few years of life we cannot judge their lives to be successes nor failures at anything. Please look at your child's report card with love and acceptance of how things are right now. Give it only the importance of the moment - notice and point out the good and positive, emphasize what your child is doing right and build on that to improve what needs improving. Young developing egos are fragile - handle with care and nourish all that your child is and can be.
