Welcome to English as a Second Language at High Plains! I am very excited to be at High Plains this year and am looking forward to getting to know you this year. I am entering my 16th year in education and have taught Pre-K through Fifth grade as an ESL teacher, Interventionist, regular classroom teacher, and family engagement coordinator. I earned my BSED in 2000 from the University of Georgia and have since then earned my Masters and Specialist in English Education. I have 4 children ages 13 to 1 1/2 years old. My first grader will be attending High Plains with me this year. After growing up in Pennsylvania, my military family and I have lived in Georgia, Washington, and now Colorado.
