University of North Dakota - BS, Nursing
I have been drawn to education since childhood. I love learning and being in a classroom, as the student or the teacher. As a young child, I would pretend to teach my family (as my pretend students) after being inspired by my own childhood teachers. The energy schools have is like nothing else! After college, I worked as a nurse for about 8 years and while I loved knowing what nurses know, I knew I had missed my true calling as a teacher. I was drawn to Friends School because of their method, values and teaching to the whole child. For the past year, I have worked as a reading specialist for children with language and writing difficulties and have absolutely loved it! This experience lead me to want to teach in the classroom, not as a tutor, but as the teacher. I cannot wait to fulfill my life dream and learn with Friends School this year!
Outside of school you can find me rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking or skiing with my husband and 2 kids. We are a busy bunch and love Colorado! I love music, coffee, meeting new people, gardening and have just completed a course on bee keeping. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing school!
