I'm so excited to be joining SVOGA!  I've been teaching in the district for the past 14 years, first at Sunset Middle School then at Coal Ridge Middle School.  Most recently, I've taught 8th grade math including algebra and geometry.  I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics from UNC and my master's degrees in literacy from CU after starting a family.  My husband of 25 years and our son both work in IT at companies in Longmont and Loveland, respectively.  Our daughter is stationed at Warren AFB in Cheyenne and working in security forces.  We are quite busy planning her upcoming wedding to a fellow Airman.  I enjoy reading, building puzzles, cross stitching, jogging, and spending time outside (especially with our dog).  I'm looking forward to a busy and rewarding year!
