Dear Third-Grade Families,

I am thrilled to have your child in my classroom. I look forward to getting to know you all throughout the school year! If there is any specific information you’d like me to have about your child, family life, health conditions, etc. please let me know.  I respond best to email [email protected], but I will also respond to phone calls at 303-367-5983 ext. 205 

This will be my ninth year of teaching in the United States and eleventh year teaching overall.  I grew up in Denver, and graduated from Lake Forest College in 2010 with degrees in Spanish and Elementary Education.  After graduation, I spent 2 ½ years teaching Spanish Literacy in South America as a Peace Corps Volunteer. When I finished my term of service in the Peace Corps, I decided to move back to Colorado. After coming back to Colorado, I taught 3rd grade for two years, taught 5th grade for a year, and earned my Master's Degree in Special Education. This will be my 6th year  at Aurora Academy. I taught 2nd grade for the past five years and am excited to have your child again in third this year. Please know that I will do anything I can to make sure your child grows this year.  In my free time I love to travel, read, and spend time outdoors.
