A Bit About Me
Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, I graduated from Fairview High School. I received my bachelor’s degree in English with education from the University of Colorado in 1986. I taught English at Steamboat Springs High School for five years. I began teaching in district #186 in 1991. I received my master’s degree in creative writing from the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2006. I enjoy reading, writing, skiing, gardening, cooking, and teaching. Last year, I was honored as Educator of The Year, by Horace Mann and District 186
