Why I chose to work at Aspen: "Enriching children from the roots up" is what Aspen is all about. Education is a calling to enrich the lives of each student and family we serve. Aspen and its staff clearly embody this calling and I am excited to help continue to grow our learning community.

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is: Noticing and helping students recognize their strengths and build on them.

Hobbies/Interests: Hiking, reading, cooking, and traveling.

Favorite author/historical figure: Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. I love stories about interesting characters and these authors provide rich, contextual characters whom I love to revisit.

Personal motto/inspirational quote: "Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know." ~Daniel J. Boorstin, Democracy and Its Discontents
