Welcome to my web page for my 5th grade classroom. I spent over 20 years in advertising and came back to the job I went to college for 4 years ago...Teaching! I am so excited to be here at Edith Wolford Elementary. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago (near O'Hare Airport) and have also lived in Irving, TX and Milwaukee, WI. I moved out here to Colorado in 2000 to be closer to family. I am the mom of a college freshman attending UCCS and he is living on campus. It is very quiet at home, but I am lucky that I do see him often. He has always been an athlete playing ice hockey and baseball so not having those games to go to will be tough I must admit. He is going to stretch himself this year by playing lacrosse as a goalie! I will maybe get to go to some games depending upon on how it goes so fingers are crossed. We have an 8-year old chocolate labrador named Brodie.
Last year was my first yeat here at Edith Wolford. Before that, I taught 6th grade language arts at Timberview Middle School and Lewis Palmer Elementary in D38 which included social studies as well (6th grade middle school model in the elementary). I am going to get your student ready for middle school and have experienced insights as to how to make your 5th grader successful for that next big step. So lets get started together in order to have an amazingly fun school year.
