I was born and raised in Colorado on the Eastern Plains. I attended CSU to get my Bachelor of Science in Home Economics Education. After teaching 2 years, I decided teaching elementary school age children was what I really wanted to do so I went to UNC for my Concentration in Elementary Education. I taught 2nd grade in Limon Colorado for 24 years. Of my 4 children, 2 attended University of Wyoming,. I have 4 grandchildren, 2 of which are future St. Mary’s Catholic School students. My job here is my dream job, as I have always wanted to teach at a Catholic school and to be near my grandchildren. I love to read, cook, and watch softball and baseball.
