    1st grade
    ​​I feel extremely blessed to have the wonderful opportunity to be your first grade teacher this year! Teaching first grade is one of my favorite things to do because we get to learn new things everyday and have a great time together!It is very important to me that students develop a love for learning early on in their long educational careers. I want students to experience that learning is a treasure that we take with us everywhere!
    I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and went to high school in Asheville, North Carolina. I studied dance and Italian at the University of Utah for two years and then moved to Boulder after studying in Florence, Italy for a semester. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Communication from the University of Colorado-Boulder (GO BUFFS!).
    I love hiking in the mountains when it is warm and enjoy skiing fresh powder during the winter! Traveling is one of my favorite things to do because I find the diversity in our world fascinating and exciting. I am always planning my next adventure and dream of one day visiting every continent! I also enjoy yoga, dancing, reading (especially Harry Potter!), and spending time with my family, friends, and two golden retrievers.
