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 16 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 is in kindergarten at Whittier Elementary this year, and loves playing make-believe, doing gymnastics and hearing stories. This is my sixth 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!
