This is my second year at Smith Elementary. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. I come from a family full of teachers. I attended undergraduate school at the University of Mississippi. I received my Masters degree at the University of Memphis. My first 3 years of teaching were in a Kindergarten classroom in Memphis. In the summer of 2014, I moved to Denver and worked as a reading intervention para. I am thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time outside hiking, skiing, fly-fishing, SEC football, Crossfit, weightlifting, cooking, music and spending time with friends and family.
