As a recent Catholic convert and North Denver native, I could not be more delighted to be a part of Catholic education in my hometown. After 12 years in early childhood education as both a teacher and a school leader, I moved into the Kindergarten classroom to unite my faith and my work with students. I firmly believe that a family is a child’s first teacher, and I look forward to partnering with parents and guardians in a meaningful way. In addition to my experience, I hold an M.A. in Educational Psychology, a B.A. in Human Development, and a Teacher Licensure for ages 0-8. My educational philosophy can be summed up in a simple sentence: I teach and learn with, for, and from Christ. When I am not teaching, I am journaling, cross-stitching, or spending time with my husband and our cats.
