I have lived in Denver longer than I have lived anywhere else and have always considered Colorado my home. I graduated from Dakota Ridge High School, and from The University of Denver with a Bachelor’s degree. After graduating, I taught English in Seoul, South Korea for a year before returning to get my teaching license from the University of West Florida. My most recent experience was with Cherry Creek online school Elevation. I taught Career Exploration for 150 middle school aged students. I was told at the time of being hired that this position was one year only. I enjoyed the opportunity at Elevation but the decline in online enrollments made it difficult to keep on the newly acquired staff.
