I am a Denver, Colorado native, and proud to say so. From a young age, I knew I wanted to write. I spent 10 years working as a reporter for Colorado newspapers and covered a wide variety of topics, yet always seemed drawn to stories about public education. After I had my own children, I realized that what I really wanted to do is teach elementary kids. This is my 11th year working for the Denver Public Schools and my fifth at Polaris. My son and daughter, now grown, are both Ebert "alums." I feel truly fortunate to work with the faculty, families and children at this amazing school.
