- Community Schools
We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more.

What is your favorite subject?
I love to teach writing workshops & science
What do you like best about teaching?
I fell in love with teaching while instructing skiing/snowboarding in the mountains. I enjoy teaching for this community of young learners. I get to be creative & explore new resources. I see every day as an opportunity for a child to discover a newly learned concept. Hearing "I get it!" is music to my ears. I absolutely love getting to know each & every one of my students so that I may keep them engaged & excited about learning.
How do you prepare students to meet future challenges?
I challenge my students to work beyond expectations & to teach others their newly learned skills. My students deepen their understanding through real world application, collaboration, presenting through technological tools & ability to use multiple strategies throughout problem solving activities. My objective is to make learning fun so that my students are eager to learn & to become successful in reaching their end of year goals.
