About Me

I am a Graphite Mentor. My goal is to engage, connect, and support teachers in order to enhance their practice in the classroom.
This year I will be the technology teacher at Holly Hills and Holly Ridge elementary in the Cherry Creek School District. I have taught technology K- 6, 2nd grade, kindergarten, reading recovery, and ELL K - 6. I am also a free-lance curriculum and assessment writer for Shmoop.com. I have my masters degree in curriculum and instruction, and I completed a year of my educational doctorate in primary reading instruction. Technology is my newest passion, and I love learning new and practical ways to integrate technology into the classroom to make learning more meaningful and efficient.
