Hello Patriot Family!
I am so excited to continue at Patriot Elementary as an Assistant Principal! As a previous fifth grade teacher at Patriot, I look forward to continuing to work with students, staff, and families at a different level.
This is my eighth year in Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight, and my previous experience includes teaching fifth grade at Mountainside Elementary and Northside Independent School District (San Antonio, Texas), fifth grade at Patriot and 7th Grade Life Science at Fountain Middle School. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from Colorado State University-Pueblo and a Master's Degree 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-one years. During our marriage, we were stationed in Wiesbaden and Heidelberg Germany (six years), Fort Carson, Colorado (for nine years), and San Antonio, Texas (three years). 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 (senior in high school), Sam (sophomore in high school) and Megan (eighth grade). As a family, we love to spend time outdoors with our dog, 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 the 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 social and academic achievement.
