Hello!  In August of 2016 I joined the staff at Palisades as the K-8 ESL Teacher and this year I will be supporting students at Palisades High School as well.

Travel and experiencing different cultures is important to me and I have spent time in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Peru where I stayed with local families, worked and took intensive Spanish courses to be totally immersed in the different cultures. I also visited Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, and Chile.  I love learning about my students' cultures.  Parents are encouraged to share about their culture with their child's class.  Please contact me to set something up.

In my free time I love spending time outdoors in nature and I am often mountain biking at the local trails near the lake, whitewater kayaking,  hiking, skiing and snowboarding.  I also love to relax on the beach with a good book.
