ʺI’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.ʺ
-Maya Angelou

I am a Denver native and grew up nearby in Park Hill. I have worked for DPS for 19 years as a 2nd Grade Teacher, a Humanities Facilitator, a Reading Interventionist, and now as an ESL Teacher. I have spent a good deal of time traveling, and I love working with adults and children from around the world. I speak English and Spanish and hope to add more languages to that list soon. I am working on French and Portuguese! My husband is a teacher as well so we enjoy our summers off traveling to as many National Parks as we can in our pop-up with our 2 children and giant Newfoundland. We also just got a puppy Newfoundland. I am so excited to be returning to Ashley. I am just minutes from home and love serving the northeast Denver community that I came from. I am passionate about building community as well as empowering students to become a crucial part of the world around them.
