I am one of Federal Heights' ELD (English Language Development) teachers. This is my second year as an ELD teacher with Adams 12, but my nineteenth year as a Colorado educator. I was born and raised in Denver, and I am proud to be a sixth-generation Colorado native. I received my degree in Linguistics from the University of Colorado many years ago. Since then I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade in metro area parochial schools, public schools, and charter schools. I am excited to be part of Federal Heights this year. I look forward to working with you and your children to develop English skills.
