      I find it such a privilege serve at Holy Trinity.  I have a Bachelor's in Nutrition from CSU and an Early Childhood Education certificate.  I have been teaching for a total of 8 years.  I find the three year old classroom to be a great fit for me.  The kids are eager to learn, but also ready to tell you everything they know.  It keeps you on your toes and also can provide comic relief.  I am honored to be part of such a great team that all have such passion for kids.  I also have a wonderful husband and 3 boys at home.

        Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children! It is such a privilege to be a part of these little one's growth. I began teaching in IL in 2nd grade, then 1st, then Kindergarten. After having my first boy, I began substitute teaching at a small church preschool and found such joy and excitement working with 3-5 year olds! When our family moved to CO in 2014, I taught 4 year olds at Primrose. In 2015, I found Holy Trinity Preschool and instantly knew I would love working in this smaller atmosphere. My older son, Paulie, attends Moody Elementary, while my younger son, Jimmy is in the Bumblebee classroom here at HTP.  I've been married to my sweet husband, Paul, for 15 years. Our family loves hiking here in CO and mostly just that we don't freeze our noses off for 6 months of the year (like we did in IL).
