I like watching the light bulb turn on for students. It is exciting to see the moment when a kiddo finally understands a difficult concept or when curiosity and a love for learning develops. I get to be a part of the moments!!
The amazing students who teach me something everyday,the gifted teachers that provide so much more than basic curriculum and the opportunities an IB school offers. The sense of community at McGraw is truly unique.
I love to read, listen to music, and spend time in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Riding ATVs, hiking with family and friends, and walking my 85 pound lap dog, Independence, are also favorite activities.
How could I possibly pick just one? "The Giver" by Lois Lowry is amazing and I have read it at least one hundred times. Anything by Lois Lowry is a favorite. "Wonder" by Raquel J. Palacio is also in my top 10.
I have never had a cavity and I hate feet...they gross me out!!

As a sign language interpreter, I have the opportunity to work in many classrooms, depending on the needs of the students I serve.
