I'm so thrilled to be teaching here at Brethren. This is my 3rd year here and my 16th year teaching English. I grew up in Denver, Colorado. I earned my degree in English Education at Biola University where I also met my husband (Robert-Brethren grad--class of '84). We have three busy kids--Kate, Luke, and Chad. My hobbies are reading and making quilts. My favorite part of teaching is getting to know my students and seeing them make connections with the books that we read.
