This is my 4th year at RMCA teaching 1st grade. I received my degree in Elementary Education from Emporia State University.  I moved to Colorado Springs with my husband in 2013. We have a four year old daughter and a son who was born in March of this year.  My family and I love to hike and travel. I am looking forward to another amazing year.
