I have been teaching since 1996. I started my career in Denver Public Schools with second language learners, and have been working with the fabulous Douglass community since 2003. I have two darling daughters, Cadence and Madison, and a wonderful and supporting husband, Brian. We live in Louisville and enjoy hiking, biking, reading, playing games, skiing and travel. When I find some "alone time," I am usually reading a book, catching up with friends, or practicing yoga.
