Hello 5th Graders! I am so excited to be starting the 2019-2020 school year! I am lucky that I get to work with such a fantastic staff, students, and parents. This will be my 2nd year at Werner, but it will be my 12th year teaching. In the past, I have taught 9 years in 4th grade and 2 years in 5th grade. Last year, my family and I moved here from Omaha, Nebraska, where I was born. I love all of the amazing opportunities and experiences that Colorado has to offer. My husband, Jon, and I have 2 wonderful kids. Jack is 8 and in 3rd grade in Windsor. He likes to play basketball, baseball, and he loves anything to do with cars, four wheelers, or dirt bikes. Addy is 5 and started Kindergarten this year. She loves playing Barbies, doing gymnastics, and anything having to do with art. As a family, we like to explore, spend time with loved ones, ride bikes, and play games. I also like to read and bake. I am looking forward to getting to know my fifth graders better as we grow and tackle challenges throughout the school year.
