This is my 10th year teaching at Maxwell. I am a proud graduate of Denver Public Schools and thankful for the excellent education I received. I attended Cornell College and received a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Sociology. After college, I worked in the non-profit community for many years and fulfilled a dream to learn Spanish. That experience changed my life; I fell in love with the learning process and decided to become a teacher. I think it is important to show children that by becoming strong readers and writers, they will have the power to use what they know to change the world.
