I am so excited to be at Tarver again this year! This is my 11th year teaching kindergarten - my 3rd here at Tarver. I attended Adams 12 Schools through high school, then graduated from Metropolitan State University. I spent my first two years teaching at Hillcrest Elementary, and then six years at Federal Heights Elementary. Ever since I was in kindergarten I knew that I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. Seeing the amazing growth that students make during their first year at school is so rewarding! I like to refer to our class as a family - we always have fun together. When I am not teaching I enjoy baking, crafting, reading, and driving to the mountains. I look forward to building relationships with my students, families, and the Tarver community this year!
