I am proud to be a kindergarten grade teacher at RES! I am native to Wyoming and love being a part of the Rawlins community. My journey to teaching began in college at UW where I majored in dance. I began teaching dance even as a student. After graduation my husband, Brandon, and I moved to San Diego. While living there I completed my graduate work in elementary education and did my student teaching. After living in CA for 5 years we moved to New York City for 2 years. After the birth of our son, Jack, we moved back to Wyoming. I spent the first years I lived in Rawlins at home with Jack and our daughter, Abigail. I also opened my own business, Cedar Street Studio, which I still run today. I offer dance classes to all ages as well as a variety of fitness classes. When Jack started kindergarten I decided it was time for me to go back to school as well. I was long term sub in 2nd grade for the 2017-2018 year and a full time 2nd grade teacher 18/19. This year I"m thrilled to be a on the kinder team! I love working with children and feel that teaching is my true calling.
