About Me
What I love about being an educator...: 

CLPE is a magnificent elementary school positioned at the base of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The Cache la Poudre River meanders behind the school with the scenic bike trail following the water's path. We have a wonderful playground with trees, a track that we share with the middle school, and a nature center. I thoroughly enjoy the staff who work collaboratively and support each other. We are excited  journey of being an IB school. We are a sharing and caring community within the larger LaPorte community.

Interests and hobbies...: 

I have a wonderful family who enjoy activities including gardening, camping, cookouts, and just being outdoors in the beautiful mountains.

Favorite Book and why...: 

I enjoy reading a variety of genres. I love to snuggle up with a good book, and currently, I even reading on my mini i-Pad!

Something most people do not know about me...: 

The first word I ever learned to say was in Swedish. Unfortunately, the Swedish has almost been forgotten.

My Classroom
About my IB classroom...: 

 I try to make learning a rewarding and cooperative experience! I am a lifelong learner, myself, and try to instill this curiosity and thirst for knowledge in my students. Being an IB World School, we focus on inquiry which allows the students to truly engage in their own learning.
