I was born in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.  I moved to Florida at the age of 13 and resided there most of my life.  I received my BS in Nursing at Long Island University.  I then attended the University of Central Florida to study Communications Sciences and Disorders with a concentration in Deaf Studies.  After two years of working as a Speech Therapist in the school system, I decided to take the teaching certification test to become a teacher.  A fun fact about me is that I played on a golf team in high school and would love to get back into it again.  This year I want to become an active part of the Maple Grove community and build relationships with our families and students.

I was born in Kansas and at 3 years old, moved to Colorado when my dad was transferred here for his job at Coors Brewing Company. My home at that time was on Eldridge here in Applewood. Later, we moved to the Applewood Knolls area. I went to Metro State College in Denver for my undergraduate degree and Colorado Christian University for my master’s degree. Those of you who know anyone who went to Wheat Ridge High School know that we say,”Once a Farmer, Always a Farmer”. So, as an adult, when I had my two boys we moved back to the Applewood neighborhood and the Wheat Ridge High School articulation area. Something fun about me is that I lived in five states within one year when I was a young adult.I am looking forward to getting to know my amazing students better this year as well as getting to know our new literacy curriculum. I am so excited!!
