GT/Honors Academy Sophomore Seminar
I've been teaching Social Studies at FCHS since 1996. I spent the 2010-2011 school year on sabbatical in the UK earning a Master's degree in human geography at the University of Bristol. In addition to teaching at FCHS I have also been an adjunct professor of geography at Front Range Community College, and was the Leadership Council chairperson for the former Colorado Geographic Alliance. I am active in the geography education community and will be continuing my previous state alliance work with the newly forming Western Mountain Regional Geographic Alliance sponsored by the National Geographic Society as well as working with several other state and national geography education organizations.
I recently published an article in The Geography Teacher (Vol 14, issue 4), a publication of the National Council for Geographic Education. I continue to research and write about cultural geographic topics as well as having presented papers at several national conferences.
I enjoy spending time with my husband in the great Colorado outdoors, photography, and classic cars. I'm an avid rugby and Bronco fan.
