Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Colorado. Even as a young child I always had a passion for learning languages. I grew up learning German and loved it! After I turned 21 I moved to Germany for a while. I spent a year and a half in the cities of Bremen, Kiel and Hamburg. When I returned back to the States I earned a degree in interpreting for the Deaf. After completing that degree, I realized that I didn’t want to give up my German. I returned to college at the University of Kansas, where I earned a double major in German and European studies. My love of learning led me to the Mississippi Delta where I taught 4th, 1st, and 2nd grades. After teaching in Mississippi, I returned home to Colorado to be closer to family. I was a teacher in an immersion school there for 5 years. I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades my first year. The next year I moved down to teach kindergarten German. I love teaching something that I am so passionate about myself. It is a lot of fun to get to watch my students experience and grow in a new language and culture. I am excited to have the opportunity to work at Millbrook where I can share my love of this language with your children.
