Hello- I am the English Language Development teacher at Boltz Middle School. I have my bachelors’ degree in Elementary Education & English as a Second Language (K-12) from the University of NE at Kearney. I also have a masters’ degree in Educational Leadership from Colorado State University. I have been teaching for 15 years and the past 10 have been at Boltz! I love working with students from around the world. I enjoy seeing their growth as they acquire the English language. I am also one of the Boltz softball coaches! I love Boltz because it has such a caring community. My husband, John, and I have 2 young daughters and a chocolate Labrador retriever. We love to spend time skiing, camping, boating and hiking.
My classroom is a place where students focus on learning how to critically think, read, write, speak, listen, view and use English in their social and academic everyday life. It is a safe space where all students can learn and feel like they belong.
