Degrees and Certifications:
Hello IVES Flyers! I am so excited to be partnering with you and your children this year as the Assistant Principal!
The 22-23 school year marks my 15th year in education. I have been at IVES since the school opened, teaching first grade and third grade, supporting students as the Dean of Students, and now the Assistant Principal. Being in the classroom first has allowed me to establish strong relationships with many of the students at IVES.
I attended college at Colorado State University where I earned a full scholarship as a pitcher on the fastpitch softball team. In 2015 I was inducted into the Hall of Fame at CSU for my softball accolades. While attending college at CSU, I earned my degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Go Rams! After college, I began teaching and earned my master's degree in reading: classroom/directed study from Regis University. In 2019, I earned my principal licensure from Lamar State University.
On a more personal note, I have been married to my husband for 10 years. We have been blessed with three boys that keep us constantly moving! They are 8, 5, 2 years old. We love to get outside and adventure with them! Whether it be hooking up our boat and camper in the summer to enjoy glistening lakes or snowmobiling and skiing in the winter, we are always up to discover the beauty of this great country. You will often find me exercising, adventuring, and spending time with my family, as those are the things I enjoy most.
"It is my uncompromising view that all students can learn, given a positive atmosphere that encourages exploration and confidence in oneself. With strong structures and supports in place, all students can soar to unparalleled heights!"
Thank you for being part of our IVES Family! I look forward to partnering with you!
