     Hi! I am the Teaching and Learning Coach (TLC). I have been teaching for 25 years. I have only been at West Elementary for a couple of years but I have been a part of District 11 for many years. Years which not only are as a teacher but also include being a student from Kindergarten through graduating from Palmer High School. Afterwards, I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a Speech Communication/Elementary Education degree. I also have a Masters in Educational Technology from Lesley University. I have taught many grades but have a particular love for the primary grades.

     I have many roles in my position. I work closely with Ms. Newton to insure that West students are getting the very best! I work with teachers to look at student data to inform instruction, provide resources and information to help them deliver the best instuction they can and I also coordinate interventions and interventionist to suppport students who need extra suppport.

     At home, I am a mom of 2. I have a daughter who heads off to college soon and a son who attends Doherty HS. These two keep my husband and I very busy. We also have the best rescue dog and 2 crazy cats.
