Bear Canyon Bears…. What a privilege it is to be part of this community! I taught in Littleton Public Schools for 4 years and at Jeffco Public Schools for 13 years.  I have taught in 3rd, 4th, and mostly 6th grade classrooms.  My last 4 years were at the Jeffco Public Schools District office working with developing curriculum and enhancing the capacity of teachers with professional development opportunities. One recent opportunity that I’m proud of was an invitation last November to present at a national conference in Nashville on integrating literacy across the content areas, which is a passion of mine. 

I am a 3rd generation native to Colorado and spent my school years in the north metro area. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 30 years.  Our son served in the USAF as a biochemist and is now in medical school here in Colorado.  He got married in 2019 in Oklahoma. His wife is a pharmacist and manager in Aurora. Our daughter is in medical school in Knoxville, Tennessee where we love to travel and explore.  I enjoy playing and watching a variety of sports.  I also enjoy all kinds of music, dancing, and eating desserts.  Working in my yard provides me calmness and peace. My faith, family and friends fill my bucket outside of school.  

An Assistant Principal position is an important part of a school. Some of the things I will be doing include:

  • Helping our teachers use student performance data to plan instruction
  • Guiding students with restorative  behaviors and practices
  • Helping to implement district initiatives around safety, personalized learning and more
  • Coaching and evaluating some of our amazing teachers

And, supporting our staff with guiding, teaching and caring for your outstanding students. 

I am very honored to hold this role and be a Bear Canyon Bear. Please feel free to contact me if I may be of assistance.
