I am so excited to be joining Odyssey as the 6th Grade Crew Lead for the 2023-2024 school year! I grew up in Minnesota, and earned a B.A. in child psychology and Spanish at the University of Minnesota. After graduating I worked in canoe-centered outdoor education and Montessori special education in the Twin Cities area. I also spent 3 years teaching internationally in Valencia, Spain in both primary and secondary schools. I still love to use my Spanish speaking skills whenever possible. In my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors here in Colorado, traveling to new places, and reading with a strong cup of coffee in hand. I look forward to meeting and growing with Odyssey students and families this upcoming year.
