“It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together”



Dear Powderhorn Staff and Families,


I am humbled and honored for the opportunity to join the Powderhorn team for the 2018-2019 school year.  I have been in education for 40+ years.  I’m often reminded that my love and passion for schools is still as strong as it was during my first year of teaching!

I retired from Jeffco schools in June of 2011.  My journey included:

  • 20 years in the classroom
  • Elementary Principal for 13 years(Bergen Meadow and Westridge)

After I retired my work included:

  • Thinking Map Consultant in Adams 50 school district
  • CDE Literacy Coach at Westgate Elementary in Jeffco
  • MTSS Administrator at Westgate Elementary in Jeffco
  • Interim principal at Fitzmorris in Jeffco for the second semester of the 2015- 2016 school year
  • READ Act consultant at Green Gables for the 2016-2017 and the 2017-2018 school years.

As you can see, I am recycled/repurposed rather than retired!!!

My goal for the school year is ensuring teachers are ready to teach and students are ready to learn.  Together we will create a safe, nurturing and welcoming place for students, staff and community.  I am committed to all of us moving ahead in a positive direction. 

I am hopeful when we reflect at the end of our school year, we view Powderhorn as a place where there was joy and active engagement in the learning process.
