Hire Year: 2016

Educational History: Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Studies & Master's Degree in Education (Second Languages and Cultures) from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Why I chose to work at Aspen: Aspen has a great sense of welcome, professionalism, high expectations and camaraderie. This ensures all students receive a rigorous yet engaging education and all staff receive the support we need to grow as professionals (while having just as much fun as the students!).

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is: I have been doing some summer reading and am hoping to engage students in more narrative learning, where they can take concepts learned and apply them to their own lives through story creating and telling.

About Me: I love Aspen!

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy being outside, whether biking, running, hiking or skiing. I also love to bake bread and pie (and eat it!). I like to read (almost) anything, write papers and poetry, play cards and other games with family and friends, and sample cheeses from around the world.

Favorite author/historical figure: Dian Fossey- primatologist, researcher, animal activist and author.

Personal motto/inspirational quote: "When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future."" -Dian Fossey Our kids are our future, so we need to do all we can to raise, educate and inspire them to do great things!
