About Me

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Cherokee Trail Elementary.  I will be your child's teacher for the 2023-2024 school year. We are looking forward to working with you this year to make your child's beginning in elementary school a success. Kindergarten is a time of excitement, wonder, exploration, and discovery. Through engaging and hands-on activities, your child will work hard academically to prepare for first grade.

I have taught in elementary education for the last 26 years.  I moved to Colorado in 2007 from California, where I taught in elementary education for ten years.  This will be my seventeeth  year teaching at Cherokee Trail Elementary.  We are blessed with two wonderful children, ages 26 and 28. My husband and I are both originally from the ND/MN area, but feel right at home here in Colorado. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hiking, golfing, and just hanging out with friends and family.

I feel a good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort between parent, child, and teacher.  I know this year might be a bit of a challenge, but together, we can make sure your child has a happy,  healthy, and fun experience in Kindergarten.  I look forward to a great year with you and your child!
