Welcome PE families :)  I'm so happy to be starting my 17th year here in Falcon!  We have grown and changed so much... and I strive to retain that sense of community and hold on to the little things that have always made us such a special place. 

I have lived in this beautiful state all my life and love everything it has to offer.  My husband, 3 kids, myself, and our mountain dog live just up the road in Black Forest and are so blessed to call it home! 

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 very busy trying to keep up with our 3 kiddos (2 of which are Firebirds here at FMS)!  I come from a family that enjoys playing and being outside... I love sharing that with my own kids and my students! 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 seeing some of my older students grow into kind, strong, assertive, healthy people.  Here's to all the wonderful things this year has in store!  Blessings!!!
