Welcome to the 3rd Grade at Ridgeview Elementary!
Hello! I must say, I absolutely feel that teaching is my calling in life! For many years, I was a stay-at-home mom and the neighborhood drop-in care giver. After my youngest started school, I decided to attend college at UCCS Colorado Springs, and after four years, I received my degree in Environmental Science and Elementary Education. Ridgeview was my first professional teaching position and is truly my second home. I have had the privilege of working at Ridgeview Elementary School since 2005, and have built strong relationships with many wonderful families! There is nothing that compares to teaching and building relationships with children and their families. 
In my classroom, each child holds value and individuality. Together, we build a community of learners in which everyone feels comfortable enough to take risks to achieve growth. 
In my spare time, my family and I enjoy camping, hiking, and playing with our sweet 'paw' friend! My backyard is our favorite place to relax, read, and plant. In fact, you might see me at one of the local plant nurseries buying perennials; it's my pastime!
