I have been teaching for 21 years (does that make me sound old?!), but it is my 2nd year at Singing Hills. I have also taught 1st grade, kindergarten, 2nd grade, English Language Support, Reading Recovery (a 1st grade reading intervention), and I've been a technology integration specialist K-6. I taught in Cherry Creek for the past 6 years, and I loved it there! It was a hard decision to leave, but I live in this awesome community with my wonderful husband, Rob, and my awesome son, Austin. With the commute (over an hour one way) and the pandemic taking a toll, it was time to move closer to home. Now I'm excited to work in this awesome community too! It is going to be an amazing year!
