I am so excited to be returning to 3rd grade this year as I continue my work at Abrams.. I am originally from Raton, New Mexico.  I lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico for 8 years. It was there I earned my bachelor’s in communication and journalism. My husband, Steve, and I moved to Colorado Springs in 2006. I then earned my master’s degree in elementary education. I was lucky enough to complete my student teaching here at Abram’s Elementary. I have been teaching at Abram’s  since 2009. Four years of my time was spent in third grade and the last three years I  took on the  role of physical education  teacher. 
Outside of school I spend much of my free time with my Crossfit family.  I coach and train at Crossfit Pandora's Box.  My husband and I enjoy hiking and exploring Colorado.  
I am beyond thrilled to get back to the classroom and work with wonderful third graders again.  

No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child.  The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure- Emma Golmam
