I am originally from St. Louis, MO. My undergraduate degree is from Washington University. While in St. Louis I also taught for two years as an art studio and reading support teacher. I moved to Colorado several years ago to complete my M.A. in Educational Psychology from CU Denver. I have also worked and studied at the Boulder Journey School, a Reggio-Emilia inspired school in Boulder, CO.

M.A. University of Denver, Curriculum and Instruction; Education Leadership, 2009. B.A. Dance Education, Colorado State University. For many years I have taught dance, and developed dance curriculum, choreography workshops, and dance theater programs. With a lifetime of involvement in the arts, and now as a classroom teacher, it is a great privilege to be here at The Studio School where I can be passionate about academics and arts in one place. I am excited daily as I see students grasp onto learning with the unique framework this school provides.

M.A. Integrated Teaching Through the Arts, Lesley University B.A. Fine Arts and teacher licensure, University of Northern Colorado

I have loved making art for as long as I can remember.  Making art gave me a chance to explore and make connection with the world as a child, and then became a vehicle for expression as I grew. It’s my hope that I can offer these same experiences to the children that I teach.

M.A. Integrated Teaching Through the Arts, Lesley University (Fall 2012 Completion)
B.A. English Literature and Teacher Certification, University of Colorado, Boulder.

Before moving to Colorado several years ago, I lived in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. There, I grew up on my family's farm. I have been working with clay for ten years and, as a ceramic artist, I know firsthand the profound learning opportunities the arts provide. Cultivating and encouraging students' academic lives while simultaneously finding their individual passions and creativity allows excellence to abound.
