I am thankful for the opportunity to serve our amazing Centennial Elementary community as the Gifted and Talented Resource Teacher. My initial degree is a B.S. in Speech Communication from the University of Texas at Austin. I followed up that degree with additional studies in education, earning my Elementary Education Certification, and I also pursued graduate work in Gifted Education. Before staying home to focus on my family for a few years, I taught for nine years in Texas, two of which I served as a K-5 Gifted and Talented Specialist. Our family moved to Colorado in 2014, and I was fortunate to join the staff of Centennial Elementary in the fall of 2018. I love teaching and collaborating with others to provide the best learning experiences possible for all of our students.
