I am beyond excited to begin my first year teaching at Trail Ridge Middle School! I am a Colorado native, and grew up in Louisville. I graduated this past May with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from CU Boulder, where I also earned my Secondary Mathematics teaching license. I have always loved math, but never thought I could pursue it as a career. I never took any advanced math courses in Middle or High School, so I felt that I didn't have a knack for the subject. When I was a senior in high school, though, my math teacher told me that I could do anything I set my mind to. I had always wanted to be a teacher... So why not teach math? Well, here I am! I want my students to achieve goals they never thought possible, both in math class and outside of it. I am a true believer in the value of hard work. If students demonstrate thoughtful, thorough work in my classroom, they will be successful. When not in the classroom, I enjoy running, yoga, and baking yummy treats. I also love spending time with my family, boyfriend, and adorable Corgi, Skye! I am looking forward to a fabulous year of learning together!
