About Me
I am thrilled to be a part of the Stargate family!  The 2018-2019 school year will be my second at Stargate, but have been working with primary students since 2009.  I have taught 1st grade in Boulder Valley Schools, Adams 12, and in Nairobi, Kenya.  Prior to my teaching career, I attended Wartburg College and University of Northern Colorado.  I played collegiate softball and sang in a jazz choir on a scholarship as well. I obtained my license in Early Childhood Education and extended my license by adding the Elementary Education Endorsement.  I am also working toward obtaining my Gifted Education Specialist Endorsement and am currently working to finish my Masters Program in Educational Leadership.  I can't wait to learn right along side my students and continue to grow both as an educator and student.  

Originally From: Boulder, CO
Has lived/taught in: Boulder, Louisville, & Westminster CO, and Nairobi, Kenya 
Countries visited: Uganda, South Africa, Mexico, England, Costa Rica, South Korea
Favorite things to do: travel, family time, movies, crafts, being outdoors

Blogging:
I will be creating three blogs (which are highlighted below).  They cover Theme, Literacy, and Math.  All of my blogs support RSS, so you can watch just the blogs that interest you by subscribing to them on the blog pages. 

Grading:
I try my best to have all grades for the previous week updated on Infinite Campus (IC) by Sunday evenings. If you ever have any questions please let me know via e-mail! You can access IC directly by clicking on the Infinite Campus link to on the menu to the left.   If an *m is entered as the score the assignment is missing, if the score is blank the assignment grade has not yet been entered.  

Favorite Quotes:
        You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. ~Dr. Seuss

        The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. ~Dr. Seuss
        

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt
