Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am ecstatic to return to Patriot Elementary as an Assistant Principal! As a previous fifth grade teacher at Patriot, I look forward to working with students, staff, and families at a different level.
This is my seventh year in Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight, and my previous experience includes Mountainside Elementary, Northside Independent School District (San Antonio), and Fountain Middle School. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from Colorado State University-Pueblo and a Master in Educational Leadership from University of Texas San Antonio.
I was born and raised in Minnesota and joined the military right out of high school. I spent 10 years in the Army, where I met and married my husband of twenty years. During our twenty year marriage, we were stationed in Wiesbaden and Heidelberg Germany, Fort Carson, Colorado (twice), and San Antonio, Texas. When my husband retired from the Army after twenty one years, we eagerly moved back to the great state of Colorado. We have three wonderful children, Tyler (junior in high school), Sam (freshman in high school) and Megan (seventh grade). As a family we love to spend time outdoors with our dogs, hiking, biking, camping, and snowboarding in the winter.
I truly enjoy being part of the Fort Carson community and being part of Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight. As a former Soldier, military spouse, and mother I look forward to partnering with students and families at Patriot Elementary. I look forward to an exciting school year and thank you for allowing me to support your students achieve excellence in all areas of academic achievement.
