Life Before Thomas Jefferson High School

I have been teaching since 1996! I have taught everywhere from a private Montessori in Parker, to an elementary school in Cherry Creek, to a middle school in Littleton, to a residential treatment center for at risk youth, to a high school in Aurora before landing back home in DPS! As a graduate from Abraham Lincoln High School, I felt I needed to teach for DPS, but I had to explore all opportunities! I have been at TJ since 2009/2010, and have loved every minute! I am the Shakespeare Festival coordinator, run a lunch club (where we hang out and watch movies at lunch or play Scene it), Harry Potter club (during lunch on Fridays) an after school movie club (a few times a month), and Guitar Club (occasionally!)! I have also taken students to Europe several times over the summers!

For fun, I enjoy anything active, nerdy or crafty!!! Diversity of fun is key!
