Originally from Chicago, I moved to Colorado in 2009 to teach high school social studies. I have worked in Adams 14 and Jeffco before coming to Thornton this year. I attended Ohio University as an undergrad and Grand Valley State for graduate teacher certification. I love teaching history and will be teaching both US History and IB History of the Americas this year. I am a huge believer in an open-access IB program and am thrilled that Thornton gives all students an opportunity to challenge themselves academically.
