I am so excited to join the Tarver community this year! This is my 9th year teaching kindergarten. I attended Adams 12 Schools throughout 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. I knew ever since I was in kindergarten that I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. Seeing the amazing growth that students make during their first year at school is so rewarding! 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!
