I grew up in Fort Collins and am a PSD graduate - I am so excited to be teaching in my home district! I love living next to the mountains, spending time in the Colorado outdoors, and hanging out with my cool cat named Rey.
I am a proud PSD graduate and completed the IB program at Poudre High School. I attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME and received my BA in Anthropology and Chemistry. After returning to Fort Collins and working for a local non-profit, I realized my passion for teaching and received my M.Ed from CSU. I have experience teaching in St Vrain Valley School District and am thrilled to now be at Lincoln!
I love exploring the natural world and helping students discover the magic in everyday events and processes. I love the Colorado outdoors - hiking, biking, camping, anything outside! I also enjoy cooking, reading, and finding great new tv series. I get excited about discovery in the science classroom and the realization that the smallest questions can lead to the greatest investigations.
I love historical and science fiction and can spend many happy hours curled up with a book. Some favorites are the Harry Potter series, anything by Michael Crichton, and exploring the Here and Now section at the library.
I love living in beautiful Colorado and being outdoors! On weekends you can usually find me out hiking or biking.
I am so proud to be part of the caring community at Lincoln and always learning from the amazing teachers around me.
"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life." - Rachel Carson
I teach 7th and 8th grade Science. I am also very excited to be teaching and coaching Lincoln's Science Olympiad team!
My goal is to create a space where we are all excited to learn and feel supported being ourselves. We will explore the world around us through inquiry, individual investigation, and collaborative experiments.
