I am currently beginning my 20th year in education. I have taught science in the Adams 12 Five Star School District for a total of 18 years with the majority of those years being at Horizon High School. Last year I embarked on a new adventure and began my first year as a school counselor at HHS. I am so very excited to take on this new role in the place I have called home for 15 years.
I earned my BA in Biology with an emphasis in Secondary Education from Metropolitan State University. I have also earned an MA in Educational Technology from the University of Colorado at Denver and have just completed a second Masters degree in School Counseling at Adams State University.
When I am not working you can find me engaging in my favorite activity, spending time with my family. I am married to my high school sweatheart and we have three grown children. We enjoy being active and explore the many amazing things this beautiful state of Colorado has to offer.
REMOTE LEARNING UPDATE:
I am happy to be able to connect with you all during this remote learning time to answer questions and provide other supports. I miss being in the building and interacting with you all each and every day and am committed to supporting your needs remotely in any way I am able. Stay healthy and hopeful and I will see your smiling faces soon.
I will be checking email and voicemail frequently throughout the day. I may return your call from a number that will be labeled as "Blocked Number".
