I have taught English/Language Arts in Poudre School District for 16 years. My undergraduate degree from Colorado State University is in English/Creative Writing. I earned my graduate degree in English at CSU as well. I am passionate about reading and writing--both in traditional forms and in digital contexts--and share this with my students. My primary objective as an educator is to help ALL students develop content-area skills and to encourage them to examine the world and all of its creative and communicative outlets with a curious and critical eye.
