Hi there, PE families :)  I'm so excited to be starting my 18th year here in Falcon!  As we grow and change so much... I'll try to keep that balance between new, innovative ideas and the sense of community, relationships, and tradition that have always made us such a special place. 

My husband and I, along with our 3 kids are all proud Colorado natives!  We love everything this beautiful state has to offer. I love to share my passion for the outdoors, for play, and for adventure with my family and my students.  

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology/Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Northern Colorado. My husband is a firefighter in Colorado Springs and what a gift it is to be able to do what we both love!  We stay busy keeping up with our 3 kids (14, 13, and 10) and all of their activities: baseball, football, wrestling, softball, volleyball, art, camping and exploring the outdoors! 

 Thank you so much for sharing your child with me... what an honor it is to be their teahcer!  I look forward to getting to know my new Firebirds and catching up with my older students... I've really missed them! I love seeing them grow into kind, strong, happy, healthy people.  Here's to all the wonderful things this year has in store!  Blessings!!!
