I love teaching and learning. I moved from Colorado Springs to Taos in 2009 and started teaching at Taos Academy in 2012. I enjoy riding my horses in the mountains of this beautiful state. My education includes the following: BS Secondary Education Social Studies, MA Organizational Management, MA Library Media and Technology. I earned an Early Childhood Through Young Adulthood National Board Certification in Library Media and have been a facilitator of National Board Certification Support Classes for teachers. I embrace the Community School Coordinator position with a passion. In this position I want Taos Academy, as a Community School, to continue to impact the lives of our students in positive ways with a focus on continuous improvement and collaborative leadership.
