Position G&T Teacher High School
I am longtime Social Studies teacher who has worked with Gifted and Talented Students as Coronado's resource teacher for the last 10 years of my 35 years teaching. Although I graduated from Mitchell HS, I have taught only on the west side, at West Jr. High, Holmes Jr. High and the last 25 years at Coronado! My husband (Palmer HS) and oldest daughter (West Elementary )are also teachers as was my dad (Mitchell and Palmer) - all in District 11. My youngest daughter is working on her masters in Communications. Our three cats, Toulouse, Pascal and Beanie have kept us sane and entertained during quarantine and are probably glad we went back to school!
I have enjoyed working with students through clubs and activities, my favorites as team coach/sponsor for Mock Trial, History Day, and Future Problem Solvers.
I look forward to a very different, but exciting year as I continue working with GT and all students as coordinator for Advanced Placement courses and exams, and CU Succeed dual enrollment, and concurrent enrollment courses such as Interpersonal Communication, Public Speaking and CU Online courses.

The CU Succeed Program collaborates with high schools all over Colorado to give students the opportunity to gain exposure to actual college courses. Students enroll in University of Colorado (Denver or UCCS) courses, but are taught and located at Coronado High School, at a reduced rate. Courses and grades appear on a CU transcript and are transferable and articulate at colleges and universities in and out of Colorado. These courses come at quite a savings to students and parents!
Gifted and Talented - Advanced Learning Plans - click on Gifted and Talented for more information - left menu
The goal of an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) is to give every identified student the opportunity to participate in creating goals that are personalized and useful. As the district high schools roll out the ALP, all documents related will be posted on this teacher page. Please click on the Gifted and Talented tab on the menu to the left.
What Are Advanced Learning Plans?
Colorado law requires an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) -
Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) are . . .“a written record of gifted and talented programming utilized with each gifted child and considered in educational planning and decision making.”From: Colorado Department of Education, 22-20-103. For the GT student, ALPs serve as a strength-based goal-setting enterprise. The key term here is strength-based. ALP goals are connected to the student’s identified area(s) of strength – verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative. From improving TCAP scores in one’s areas of strength to mentorship, independent projects, job-shadowing, research, and advanced studies classes, ALP goals serve as a means to enrich and develop the students’ gifted strengths.
Here is the timeframe to complete the online ALP** All ALP's are tied to ICAP this year and will be completed on Naviance. Emails and instructions will be provided to Gifted and Talented students beginning November 8.
** Failure to complete the ALP on Naviance/ICAP by the specified deadlines listed above will indicate that the student is choosing not to participate in the ALP goal setting activity for the current school year. The student will still be able to receive gifted and talented services, but will not have a formal ALP written.
