I have been teaching for 21 years. at three different San Luis Valley districts (11 years, 4 years, and 5 years respectively) so I am familiar with several areas of the Valley. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary English Education and my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Adams State.
I teach because I believe education can change one's life. I teach language arts because I believe that reading opens the door to independent learning and is essential to maintaining an informed,democratic society. I believe the ability to communicate effectively, which includes sending and receiving information, in a variety of formats allows individuals to to be heard and to express their thoughts, values, and beliefs. I also believe that reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing are ways to learn about ourselves and others.
I am originally from southern Ohio but my husband and I have lived in San Luis Valley for 36 years, and my three sons were born and raised here. I am blessed to have three grandchildren (so far)--two boys and (finally!) a granddaughter.
I enjoy reading (of course), needlework, gardening, and walking (especially in the mountains). I love all animals (I originally wanted to be a veterinarian!) but am limited right now to a dog and a cat.
