- Community Schools
I am thrilled to be a part of the Lyons Community! This marks my 5th year here at Lyons Elementary and my 26th year teaching in SVVSD. I have had the pleasure of teaching all grades, K-6 throughout my career. I have enjoyed and learned from each opportunity and know I will continue to grow as an educator. Originally from Wisconsin, I came to Colorado in search of ‘real’ snow and the best skiing, which of course I found here! I stayed for the mountains and graduated from CU Boulder with my degrees in Psychology and Education. I am so grateful for the chance to be a part of this amazing town, community and school!
My children are both grown and following their dreams. Morgan is 26 and currently living in California. She is an Environmental Educator, working with elementary age students. She has always loved kids and the natural world and has found a way to incorporate both into her daily life. Tavon is 22 and finishing up his undergraduate work at CSU. He is majoring in Geophysics and Music. His love for geology, math and the cello has presented him with some great opportunities and ways to follow those paths. Watching them grow has opened my eyes to all the many opportunities that await our children- anything is possible!
In my free time I enjoy reading, skiing, hiking with my dog-friend Oz, and playing my Djembe drum. I’m looking forward to another exciting year!
