I graduated from CU with a BS degree in Elementary Education. I have been part of the Ryan Community since the school opened and my children attended here. It has been my privilege to have been a teacher here for 21 years. During that time I have taught 5th, 2nd, 4th, 1st, and have been a literacy teacher. This year I am excited to work with students in my new position as a Response-to-Intervention Teacher. I have taken many classes about teaching math, and am looking forward to working with students in this capacity. My own children have grown up now and and have families of their own. I enjoy spending time with them and my grandchildren. I love to garden--especially with the grandchildren!
