I am a graduate of Drake University in Des Moines, IA. I earned my degree in Elementary Education with a focus on literacy. Since graduating from Drake, I moved to Denver and spent spent five years as an elementary classroom teacher as well as a literacy tutor for all grades Kinder through 8. I am also returning to school to earn a degree in Engineering. I have experience teaching every subject in the elementary grades, but I become the most passionate about literacy, science, math, and history. I do believe that every individual can find a way to make education work for them, and I use that belief as a starting point when working with a new student. When I'm not working or studying, I enjoy reading books of all different genres, hiking, rock climbing, spending time with my dogs, and working in my garage on wood or metal projects.
