About Me
The 2017-18 school year will mark my 20th year of teaching...all at the best school in Fort Collins! I began my career by teaching students with learning disabilities. For the next three years, I taught students with significant emotional disabilities. Although I enjoyed teaching students with special needs, I then decided I would like to try teaching general education. I taught first grade for a year, and I've been teaching second grade since 2003. I love teaching 2nd grade!
My husband, Jesse, is a GIS Cartographer (he creates nautical maps & charts on computers). We have two wonderful sons. Jake is 14 years old and a freshman at Fort Collins High School. Matthew is 11 years old and in 6th grade at Boltz Middle School. As a family, we enjoy playing/watching sports, traveling, reading, and watching movies.
My Bachelor of Science teaching degree is in both elementary & special education. I graduated from Iowa State University and immediately headed for the less humid and overall better climate of Colorado! After teaching for one year, I began taking graduate classes and earned a Master of Arts degree in special education from University of Northern Colorado.
Although I've taught students (K-6th grade) with emotional/behavior disabilities and first grade, my favorite grade to teach is second. I look forward to another fun year with our fantastic Tavelli students!
