the smiles and laughter that my students bring to my life everyday
Fort Collins, CO (born and raised!)
Crafts, singing, gardening, and being with family and friends.
Hello! I started working at Bauder Elementary School in 2010 and I have loved every minute of it! Bauder is a wonderful place and I couldn't ask to work at a better school. I was born and raised in Fort Collins and am happy to be back living in this beautiful city. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my degree in Elementary Education. Outside of school I love to sing, work on crafts, garden and spend time with my family and friends. I am married to a former Bauder Buck, Mr. Cody. He comes in every so often to volunteer and meet the kids. I also am fortunate to have a family that lives very close and are also in to hang out with us sometimes. I have a cat named Cooper and he is my kid at home!
Throughout my time at Bauder, I have loved the sense of community that comes from this place. I strive to draw this community in to my classroom by getting to know my students deeply and making them feel like our classroom is a family. We will work towards mastery of reading, writing, and primary level math through multiple different learning styles. You also might find us dancing to give our "brains a break" during the day. Overall, I hope to create a fun and caring environment where every single student is encouraged to succeed and grow.
