I started my teaching career immediately after a December graduation, taking over for a teacher who had been fired mid-year due to poor classroom management. I was a whopping five years older than my students and I still have nightmares about my 5th-period class from that year. Twenty-seven years and two states later, I shifted from the classroom to the district level, supporting teachers as an Ed Tech Instructional Coach for Aurora Public Schools in Colorado. In my career, I’ve taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science, and Computer Technology.
I’m passionate about equity, teaching, travel, and football – especially my beloved Longhorns and Broncos.
