"Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world"

Grateful Dead-Barlow & Hunter

I have had the pleasure to work in the Poudre School District for 18 years.  I also teach in the three Mountain Schools; Red Feather, Livermore and Stove Prairie as well as PGA /Options.  I am a mother  of  two man-children; Ben 23 and Jaymin 20. I have a fluffy calico cat named Molly and two hairy Dachshunds named Annie and Oscar.  My favorite  thing to do is go camping in my  50 year old VW Camper Van named Ramblin Rose/Rosie.  I love being outside- mountains, ocean beaches, deserts- love it all! I love doing art, mostly hand building clay creations. Watching kids create is the best!

What I am learning-I am leaning to fly fish and swing dance. I also love to learn new art techniques.

What I am eating-  I am a pescatarian. I eat fish but nothing else that has a face.

Favorite places I have traveled - Croatia, Mexico, Canada, Chile, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, lots of Europe, most of the US and most recently- Alaska. 

What am I listening to- Grateful Dead- Yep I am a Deadhead. Traveled to many shows with the band.
