This is my 8th year at Fairview and my 19th year teaching. I have a husband (who teaches biology here at FHS--Dr. Strode) and an 11-year old daughter who is in 6th grade. We have a dog and two cats. I have a B.A. in literature from CU-Boulder, a M.S. in secondary literacy education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a PhD in secondary literacy education from CU-Boulder. I'm a Colorado native. My favorite author is Toni Morrison and I'll spare you from the long list of my favorite books (ok, how about a few? Morrison's Beloved, Ellison's Invisible Man, Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, Martel's Life of Pi). In my free time, I hike, run, quilt, knit, read, write, cook, watch movies, do yoga, read and write about teaching, and hang out with my family (my brother also lives in Boulder with his family and my parents live in Westminster).
