Hello Everyone…

I am so very happy to be here at High Plains K-8.  I look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you.

I am new to the Loveland area. However, I was born in Greeley and raised in Colorado. I have lived most of my life in Colorado Springs; however, I've also lived in Denver, Evergreen, Breckenridge and Woodland Park.

I have two older children and one granddaughter. My daughter. Shellese is 31 years old. My son, Joshua is 27 years old. My granddaughter, Liliyn is 11 years old.

This is my 39th year of teaching. I have been blessed to teach elementary, middle and high school, as well as college. I have worked as a technology and digital integration specialist, coach for over 30 years. 

I LOVE working together with students and teachers learning about and integrating new and exciting curriculum, technology and projects. I have been a robotics coach for a few years. We were blessed to win 1st and 2nd place in Colorado for our innovative projects and terrific teamwork.

In my new role, as Innovation Specialist, I look forward to continuing to do all of the things I love, while meeting new people and learning new things. My motto in life is:

"Inch-by-inch, everything's a cinch, and yard-by-yard, everything's, let's go inch-by-inch!" 

You’ll undoubtedly hear me say this a lot! I love to teach, learn and live life!

I look forward to doing all of these things alongside you, here at High Plains!

This is going to be a terrific year!
