Literacy Ability Grouping Instructor (Kindergarten), Castle Pines
This will be my 6th year teaching at American Academy. I have taught 1st-4th grade in some capacity over the past 5 years. I am thrilled to be teaching math and literacy in Kindergarten this year! I have been married for 13 years and together my husband and I have three children. Jade (7th) and Liam (Pre-K) will be attending Shepherd of The Hills Christian School; and Cody (4th) will begin another wonderful year here at AA! I enjoy spending time with my family going to movies or dinner or simply having a family game night whenever we can. I am positive this is going to be the best year yet!!

Kindergarten Instructor (Full-Day), Castle Pines
I love teaching Kindergarten at American Academy! I moved to Colorado when I was seven years old, and lived in Castle Rock until I left for college. I received my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from John Brown University in Arkansas, and returned to Colorado after graduating. I then taught in Aurora Public Schools for three years, and in Caracas, Venezuela, for two years at an international school. I love traveling, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.

I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and have been working in the early childhood field for several years. I especially love working with Kindergarten! I have been teaching Kindergarten here at American Academy for several years and LOVE it! I am a 4th generation native to Colorado and grew up right here in Douglas County. I love spending time with my husband and wonderful baby boy Justin. I am a huge animal lover and I have a yellow lab named Cash and an Eclectus parrot named Keko. In my free time, I enjoy going to the movies and concerts. On Sundays, you can find me with the family watching the Broncos. My family has been season ticket holders for the last 30 years!
