- Community Schools
I am thrilled to be teaching third grade at Centennial Elementary and to be part of such a warm and dynamic community. Centennial is a wonderful place to teach and learn, and I feel so fortunate to be in this profession doing what I love. I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment, which encourages students to believe in themselves and to do their personal best.
I grew up in Michigan and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting and Business from Michigan State University. After graduating, I worked many years as a Certified Public Accountant in Southern California before moving to Colorado. I decided to return to school to receive my teaching license and have been at Centennial since then.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with my three adult children and my husband Jim.
