I am a proud DPS graduate from South High School. I earned my Undergraduate Degree from the University of Northern Colorado and my Master’s Degree, Educational Specialist Degree and Principal License from the University of Colorado at Denver. I began teaching in Mapleton Public Schools in 2000, then came back to DPS and taught for eleven more years. Both of my children are DPS students. My daughter Kai is a junior and my son Jace is a freshman as third generation students at South. We also have an exchange student living with us this year from Madrid, Spain. Daniela is a sophomore at South this year!

Dean of Instruction
I was born and raised in Colorado; I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from Colorado State University and my Master’s of Education & Human Development in Teaching in Diverse Contexts from the University of Colorado – Denver. I am currently enrolled in the Education & Leadership Policy Studies program through the University of Denver to attain my licensure to become a principal in the future!
I love teaching children how to love learning and to pursue their passions. I am honored to have been teaching at Carson for 5 years, two of which I have also had the opportunity to lead and coach teachers in planning and instruction. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, baking, and playing video games with my wife, Marissa. We have one dog, Ivy, and one cat, Reesey!
