My Classroom
About My Classroom: 

<P>I look forward to guiding my students on their second grade journey. Though I've lived in to Ft. Collins for 7 years, I’m very familiar with Colorado. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. For the past 25 years, I have taught grades Kindergarten through second grade in Greeley, CO, Laramie, WY and Fort Collins, CO. I believe that children become interested and invested in their learning when they are encouraged to inquire. Through positive encouragement, I will strive to make this a happy and fulfilling year, providing the opportunity for each child to soar.</P>
