About Me

I am a Nebraska panhandle native who ventured to the Denver area before returning home in 2018. My husband, Scott and I make our home in Bridgeport with our two daughters. I enjoy tagging along with Scott and the girls on their outdoor adventures and capturing the memories with photography. On the days that the adventures are more dad and daughter focused, I enjoy settling in on the couch for a good binge session of low quality, reality TV and a good nap.


Philosophy of Education

"Progress is more important than perfection." - Simon Sinek

I believe every student is capable of learning, but that does not mean they will all learn at the same rate or in the same way. My intentions are to create a learning environment that focuses on supporting individual growth and progress. Because I believe everyone is capable of learning, I have high expectations for all my students and work to provide a learning path that helps them meet goals along the way. I then celebrate individual successes, growth and progress throughout their entire learning journey.
