    4th grade
    ​​I am thrilled to be a part of the Whittier family! Teaching 4th graders at Whittier is more than just a job; it is a passion. I adore spending my day with your children. It is a privilege to see them make new discoveries, ask questions, learn, laugh, and grow.  I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon in Spanish and Special Education. I have a Master’s in Literacy from the University of Colorado, Denver. My experience includes teaching Head Start in New York City, kindergarten at the Taipei European School in Taiwan, and Special Ed in Quito, Ecuador. I was born and raised in Boulder and educated in the BVSD school system. It is a joy to be teaching in Boulder, especially within this amazing community at Whittier!
    My husband and I have three beautiful children. On my free time, I love to spend quality time with my family. Together, we love adventure and to travel to far away places.
