Welcome to my DP! I am so excited to begin my third year of teaching at Animas High School. I just recently finished my teaching credentials and am excited to apply what I've learned throughout the year in my classroom. I will be teaching 3 sections of Math 3, and 2 sections of pre-calculus.
I'm a Colorado Native, born in Boulder and raised in Denver. Being a native is something I'm very proud of and take a lot of pride in. I knew from a young age I always wanted to be a teacher but I wasn't sure what I wanted to teach! My junior year of high school, I was taking Algebra 2 and it hit me that I wanted to learn more about math, so I decided to study math in college. I started playing volleyball in high school, arguably my first true love and continued playing at Fort Lewis College, go Hawks! I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelors in Math and immediately got hired at Animas. I feel extremely lucky to work at a school with such passionate and strong teachers and administrators, as well as our wonderful students! It truly makes teaching so enjoyable and fun. I look forward to going to work in the morning and interacting with my students and colleagues.
Living in Durango has been a tremendous blessing in my life. It awoke my love of the outdoors and living in the mighty mountains. I like to do just about everything; mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing/snowboarding, you name it! I also really enjoy watching sports, reading, going to the movies and going to concerts and festivals. Balance and independence are two ideas that are very important to me and ones I try to invoke in my day to day life.
I think we are in for a great year and I look forward to getting to know all of my students!
