- Special Education
I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Hygiene team. I love the chance to learn and I am continually humbled to have the chance to work with your amazing students.
My purpose is equity. I am driven by the desire to create an environment where all students can be successful. My impact is the creation of a system that allows all students to be successful. Success comes from building relationships with each student I work with. It is complemented by continual collaboration with teachers and other stakeholders, data collection and analysis, and an on-going cycle of learning and reflection.
Prior to entering the field of education I received my undergraduate and master’s degrees in Native American Studies. I then went on to receive a law degree with a focus in Federal Indian Law. Teaching has always been a part of my career path and quickly became my career after I graduated from law school. I began teaching at Front Range Community College and the University of Northern Colorado. After a year of teaching I decided to pursue my teaching licensure. I continue to teach American Indian History on-line for Front Range.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, two beautiful children, two dogs and cat. I also love to spend time gardening, learning, reading, cooking plant-based recipes, running, doing yoga, being outside and volunteering.
