I have heard so many great things about Odyssey and I am so excited to start this next journey. I am a proud Denver, Colorado native. I have always been passionate about working with students and supporting all students. I started my teaching career in Eastern North Carolina and Washington, DC with Teach For America. I enjoyed my time away from Colorado but always knew that I would come back home. While getting my Masters at CU Denver for special education I learned about Stanley British Primary School. I was drawn towards their commitment towards community and developing a joy in learning. I taught there for 6 years and then found myself drawn back towards public education. I have spent the last two years at Creativity Challenge Community (C3) - a small DPS school. While I have loved C3, I have missed the community aspect of the school with having it so far away from my home. I am excited to be joining a school that shares my values and beliefs and a school where I can become a true part of the community. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 3 year old son. We love being outside and enjoying all that our great state has to offer! Biking, hiking, camping, backpacking, skiing – I love it all!
