About Me
Hello families and welcome to 2nd Grade! I am excited to start another school year at Tavelli! I am looking forward to getting to know my new students and families and having a wonderful school year. I wanted to tell you a little more about me. I am married and we just celebrated our 17th year together. We have two daughters ages 12 and 14. They will be in 7th and 9th grade this school year. I am so thankful for my kiddos because they bring such joy into our lives everyday. We love doing things together as a family. We enjoy playing games, doing puzzles, reading, watching movies, playing sports, cooking, and playing at the pool. We spent most of our summer outside and at the pool. When I am not spending time with my family I enjoy reading, yoga, gardening, cooking, watching movies, and seeing friends.
Educational background: I moved to Colorado when I was in 9th grade. I attended Webber Junior High and Rocky Mountain High School. After graduating, I went to Colorado State University (CSU) and graduated with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. After that I attended the University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) for my Teacher Licensure Program and Masters degree. My teaching career began at Cache La Poudre Elementary in Laporte. I started teaching fourth grade in 2002. After having my own children and taking some time off, I came to Tavelli to teach fourth grade again. Even though I loved fourth grade, I decided I wanted to try another grade level and moved to teach 2nd grade. I really enjoyed 2nd grade and decided to stay here for a while. This is my 10th year in 2nd grade and my 17th year of teaching.
