Degrees and Certifications:
Initially, I came to Colorado to paint a mural on a doctor's wall. I ended up meeting my husband Blaine, and was hired to teach 5th grade at Mesa Elementary. Eventually, the art teacher at Mesa moved, and I took her place as the art teacher. I have taught in 7 schools, and worked with many wonderful colleagues in the past 33 years in District 8. I have a 35 year old son Jake, and he is still living in my home state, Wisconsin. He has a beautiful 9 year old daughter named Rosie. She is quite artistic too. I love animals, riding my horse JB, and running with my Golden Retriever, Amber. I hope to be able to do some watercolors myself when I retire in June. I've enjoyed working with so many nice colleagues, and my team is AWESOME!
