Senior Team Lead & Intervention
I moved to Denver five years ago from Iowa, and have been teaching at Palmer since then. I earned my degrees from Truman State University in Missouri, and have my Bachelor’s in Anthropology and my Master’s in Elementary Education. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we adopted a cat last year named Vichy. We enjoy exploring the city and hiking in the mountains. I bring my love of nature, exploration, and inquiry into the classroom through hands-on and thought-provoking experiences for students. I am a member of the Teacher Innovator Institute with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
