About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! Thanks so much for visiting!

This coming school year will be my 14th! I have taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, and love it so much that I know I was meant to be a teacher in the intermediate grades.  I have also been a mentor teacher, which included working with other teachers in their classrooms and mine.

When I’m not working or thinking about teaching, I love to travel with my amazing husband, read, sew and get crafty! We have two Golden Retrievers and a tabby cat to keep us company at home. During the summer and fall we enjoy hiking, camping and 4-wheeling in the mountains. I am an avid football fan and love the Broncos!

Yep! We're "Tebowing!!"

Thanks again for visiting and please contact me if you have any questions or ideas for the blog!
