This will be my second year teaching at Werner. Last year I taught fourth grade, and I am thrilled to be teaching first this year! Nearly three years ago, I completed my student teaching at Werner and it is a true privilege to be apart of this staff. In 2018, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Elementary Education, a minor in Leadership Studies and an endorsement in ESL. Before UNC, I attended Ralston Valley High School and Faith Christian Academy in Arvada, Colorado. I've known I wanted to teach my entire life, and I am honored to have the responsibility of helping shape young minds every day. When I am not teaching, I am busy playing with my new puppy, Kona, as well as being a newly wed! My husband, Jonathan, and I also enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, running and anything else we can do outdoors in this beautiful city.
