I teach Social Studies at Finest. I have been teaching at our school for 22 years. Before that I taught in Cherry Creek Schools for 2 years and began my teaching career in England. I taught at a school in Devon, England for 2 years in 1988. I graduated from the University of Lancaster(UK)with a BA degree in Geography and Economics. I earned my Post Graduate Degree in Education at the university of Exeter.(UK) I completed my Masters degree in Administration in 1996. I am passionate about the environment and many of my classes focus on how to protect the natural world. I spend as much of my time as I can hiking in the Colorado Mountains which are spectacular. While I am in England during the summers I like to surf on the many beaches in Cornwall. They call it the California of England minus the sunny weather! I have 3 children. My oldest son is Josh and he teaches Math at Aspen High School. My daughter Nicole is 23 and she graduated from CU and works at a company in Boulder called Wish Garden. My youngest son is Jake who is a senior this year at Littleton High School.
