About Me

During my short teaching career (4 years), I have never stayed in one place too long. 

I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade ELA in Pueblo West, CO.
I NEVER thought I would teach middle school, but I kind of sort of really like it.


Before that, I spent one short and sweet year teaching 6th grade ELA and STEM in Pueblo, CO. I kind of sort really loved that too.


Before that, I taught 5th grade in Grand Junction, CO for two years. Again, it was pretty wonderful. I honestly never thought I would leave, but life has a way of making these decision for you, and none of my teaching positions have disappointed.


I am originally from the beautiful mountain town of Salida, Colorado.

This is the view from my parent's house in Salida. Seriously!

I went to college at Colorado State University-Pueblo.

I married my husband, Richie, at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
We have been together for…. well… forever.  




I think he is just ridiculously cute.

We have a CRAZY weimarainer-lab dog, Bodie. We adopted him when he was five.
The crazier he gets, the more we love him. 

I have three younger siblings, who are the coolest people I know.
We have so much fun together, especially now that we don't live together :).

I LOVE teaching upper elementary and middle school. It's almost ridiculous that I get paid to do it… almost :).

Hi there! I found your resources on TPT and they look great! I'm trying to figure out what my year will look like next year (6th grade Lit.) I'll be a first year teacher and am looking for a literature based approach. I also live in CO and my boyfriend is from GJ.

I saw that you had a blog and wanted to say thanks for all of the resources! It's great! I'll be checking it frequently for ideas:) I have a blog as well, and would love your follow.
