Fifth Grade Reading, Language & Social Studies Teacher
What is a unique thing about you?
I was born in Germany. We moved to the States when I was one and half years old. My first language was German until my mom realized that I was about to start kindergarten in Colorado Springs, CO. Because of the new language and being very shy, elementary school was difficult.
Another cool thing is I was born on my mother's birthday which is Valentine's Day. My oldest daughter missed it by 2 days.

What inspired you to teach?
When I was in elementary school, I would gather all the 3 – 6 years olds and play school in my neighborhood. I loved watching them actually learn what I was teaching them.
