I have been teaching for 14 years, 13 of them right here at Tarver. I graduated from Metropolitan State University then received my Master’s in Education from Grand Canyon University. I have been married close to 30 years to my husband who is a Supervising Auditor for the Department of Defense. I have 3 beautiful children: Brandyn 29, who is a BASE Site Leader at Silver Creek Elementary. He is married with two children. Courtney is 24 and works as a 911 dispatcher with the Thornton Police Department and Chelsea, 20 works at Petsmart and is currently taking college classes for business and marketing at Metropolitan State College. All three of my children have spent their school careers in Adams12 School District. I spend most of my spare time playing sports, camping, hiking and boating.
