I feel honored to be a staff member at Silver Creek Elementary. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 32nd year of teaching in Adams 12 Five Star Schools (not including a year of subbing). I have taught as an ESL teacher and a classroom teacher in both primary and intermediate grades. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Social, Multicultural, and Bilingual Foundations of Education with an emphasis in ELL instruction from Colorado University on August of 2004. At Silver Creek I support our language diverse learners through various stages of language development by offering a program where language structures are taught developmentally through challenging, content rich, and comprehensive instruction.
On a personal note, I have been married to a wonderful husband for 34 years! I have two terrific children, Connor and Logan. Connor and Logan graduated from Colorado State University. During the summer my family spends a great deal of time wakeboarding and tubing. When we get a chance, we like to go camping and hiking. I also enjoy scrapbooking, reading, and getting together with family and friends.
