Hello 5th Graders! This will be first year at Werner Elementary! I am lucky that I will get to work with such a fantastic staff, students, and parents. Although it is only my first year here, it will be my 11th year teaching. In the past, I have taught 9 years in 4th grade and 1 year in 5th grade. My family and I recently moved here from Omaha, Nebraska where I was born. So far I am loving all of the amazing opportunities and experiences that Colorado has to offer. My husband Jon and I have 2 wonderful kids. Jack is 7 and in 2nd grade in Windsor. He likes to play soccer, basketball, baseball, and he loves anything to do with cars, four wheelers, or dirt bikes. Addy is 4 and in preschool. 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.
