I enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of community members regarding the creation and implementation of possibilities for our students and their futures.

What influenced you to serve on the Board for the Dream Team?

During my time on the Dream Team Board of Directors, I have been the liaison with Weld County School District #6. It is important that the partners in WCSD #6 have accurate information to share with others as well as to use in their work with teachers, administrators, students, and families.

What does it mean to you (personally and/or professionally) to serve on the Board?

Serving on the Dream Team Board of Directors is important to me because it is one way to make sure that there is “room at the table” for everyone, including our students and their families.

What advice would you give a Dream Team student who one day wants to work in your field?

Being an educator is being a member of one of the greatest professions in the world. It is a remarkable combination of using both your “heart” and your “head” to make all things possible for those who want to accept the challenge.

What did you study in college?

I have undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Spanish Liberal Arts. My graduate degrees are in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in English Language Learners and K-12 Administration.

What inspired you to work in your field?

I was inspired by a variety of people to pursue education. My father was a teacher, coach, and administrator. My mother worked as a library assistant, a classroom instructional assistant, and an Office Manager. I had the good fortune of being influenced and impacted by some of the best teachers in the profession. Because of all of these individuals, I joined what I consider to be the BEST profession ever; one where you can change lives every single day.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy reading, attending sporting events such as the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies, as well as theater productions at the UCCC and the Denver Center Theater.
