Why did you become a teacher, then administrator?
First because I loved literature but it wasn’t long before I discovered that is was because I loved kids and helping them to love reading and writing.

What is your favorite book or author?
Oh so many! I named my first son Owen after “A Prayer for Owen Meany.” That book is in my top 10 for sure. For a classic I love “Cry the Beloved Country”. And the for a fun read I loved “What Alice Forgot”. And as a kid I could not get enough of the Francis books.

Do you have a favorite sports team?
Broncos and Avalanche (when they are winning)

What is your favorite food?
Mac and cheese (gourmet).

I used to marvel at the sound of my kids breathing while they slept. So soothing. Since they are both young adults now I settle for listening to Mr. Jones snore (he is my new Frenchton puppy).

What is your favorite season?
Fall and the start of a new school year

Do you have any pets?
Mr. Jones!

Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m a good finder of things lost or misplaced. Which is good because I often lose things!

What is something that didn’t come easy for your or you struggle at?
I struggle with keeping things tidy: both at home and at work.

What is your favorite vacation destination?
Our family alternates each year between an ocean and a beach vacation. Recommendations please!

What are you learning?

The fact that every student is embraced as a whole child. No labels here!
