     Welcome to Kindergarten!  Your child's year will be filled with excitement: blossoming social skills, mastering sounds and words in print, and developing the concepts of numbers, just to name a few.


This is my ninth year in Kindergarten at Namaqua.  As expectations have changed over time, one thing remains constant:  children.  They are curious, learn through play and love to explore.  I design our days so that every child is able to experience success and pride in their work and develop a rich understanding of the standards required in Kindergarten.  

      I have been married for 28 years and we have been blessed with four terrific children.  Our family has expanded to include my daughter-in-law and my grandson.  Our house is hopping!  Our family has lived in Loveland for 12 years and our hobbies include gardening, reading mysteries and enjoying meals together.

      I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in 1987.  I have taught 2nd grade in Utah,  Head Start preschool, kindergarten and 6th grade in Wyoming, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Namaqua, as well as Special Reading.  This year I will wear two hats.  I will learn and grow with the half-day Kinders in the mornings, and work with students needing intervention in the afternoons.  I am excited to embark on this new challenge.
