I have been part of the Widefield school community since 2003. I spent the first seven years of my career teaching sixth grade at Webster Elementary and moved up to Watson when the sixth graders transitioned to junior high. Since being here, I have taught sixth grade literacy, seventh and eighth grade Language Arts, reading, Corrective Reading, Reading Plus, and writing. I also am the advisor for the National Junior Honor Society.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, traveling, and chasing after my very busy puppy, Otis.
I enjoy the energy that junior high students bring to the classroom, and I am excited to develop their enthusiasm for reading and writing. I am available before school, after school, and during lunch if your student needs extra help. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns this school year. I look forward to a great year!
