This year, I am teaching World Literature and Composition and PIB 10 World Lit and Comp. I am from Washington, DC, and have lived in Boulder for 14 years. I enjoy hiking and cross-country skiing in the mountains, but I also love cities: the hustle and bustle, the art and culture, even the grime and noise. I taught middle school, first in Westminster and then at Summit Middle School, until my daughter, Martina, was born. She will turn five this November, and loves playing make-believe, doing gymnastics and hearing stories. This is my fifth year at Fairview, and I am very happy to be a part of this community. I love spending time with my family, as well as watching movies and, of course, reading!
