Hello and welcome to 2nd grade! I am so excited to have the privilege to work with your child this year at Clear Sky. I believe each child enters the room with their own unique gifts and talents. I hope to utilize those and foster a love of learning in your child. We strongly believe in community building at our school and one of our great hopes is to encourage the well-rounded development of each student who walks through the doors. 

This year we will be learning about the Earth, plants, communities and more. We will be taking explorations through new math techniques and developing new strategies in both reading and writing.

One of my greatest passions is education. I have been interested in and involved in education for many years, both as an educator and as a parent. I earned my Masters in Education from Regis University and truly love working with children. 

I believe that we, teachers and parents, are a partnership and are both crucially impactful to our students’ education. Please feel free to reach out to me. My email is

Thank you for entrusting your fabulous second graders to me!
