I'm looking forward to working together this year at PGA! I'm new to Poudre Global Academy in 2021, though I've had various roles in Poudre Schools since 2009 that have been involved with all grade levels. I trained to be a teacher (PGCE) in England with a specialism in literacy. In 2019 I completed my M.Ed. at CSU. Some focus areas for me were online learning and inclusion through various frameworks, including Universal Design for Learning. I love living in Fort Collins and have been here for about 18 years after being in a few other places. I have 3 interesting and kind grown-up children. I live with two dogs, a cat and my very amusing husband. He is a great mechanic and a good cook, which is good because I really like bikes, cars, planes and motorbikes and I'm not that into cooking things myself. I am interested in the craft of sign painting and would like to get good at it. I try to keep fit with swimming, cycling and yoga. I walk a lot and think about how lucky I am every day.
