All of my course materials are in Google Classroom--students be sure you're logged in to your BVSD Google account and go to classroom.google.com.
This is my 11th year at Fairview and my 22nd year teaching. I have a husband (who teaches biology here at FHS--Dr. Strode) and a 14-year old daughter who is in 9th grade. We have two fur children, a dog and a cat. 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 and proud to be a product of public schools, k-PhD (all but my master's degree in Colorado schools). 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 mom recently moved to Boulder and my brother--who coaches golf for FHS--also lives in Boulder county with his family).
