    4th grade
    I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and I've been working with kids since I was a kid. I have always had a passion for combining education and the outdoors. I've taught groups of students in many different "classrooms" ranging from the ocean floor to the tops of mountains and volcanoes. I've taken hundreds of students surfing, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, backpacking, and mountain biking in various spots in Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. Before becoming a classroom teacher, I led youth trail crews in the Pacific Northwest. Then I went on to lead study abroad and cultural immersion programs for teenagers in Central America. After earning my teaching license in Boulder, I moved to China and facilitated a wide variety of educational programs in both Hong Kong and rural Chinese villages. When I returned to Boulder, I began teaching 4th grade at Bear Creek Elementary in 2013. During my summer vacations- I enjoy bike touring and traveling with my husband, Pablo.
