I was born and raised in Littleton and am a proud graduate of Littleton Public Schools. My sisters and I attended Centennial Elementary, Goddard Middle School and Littleton High School. After graduation, I went on to attend Colorado School of Mines, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. I met my husband Brandon at Mines, and we were married a few years after graduating. When it came time for us to have a family of our own, we knew we wanted our children to attend Littleton Public Schools, and we purchased our first home in the district. We have two daughters; Isabelle is 12 and a 7th grader at Euclid Middle School, and Olivia is 10 and a 5th grader at Franklin Elementary. I have been both a working mom, as a process engineer, and a stay at home mom during my daughters' time in school, and I can understand the challenges and joy that can come from both.
Watching my daughters grow, learn and thrive in the same school district I attended has been such a joy for me. My experience volunteering for the district in many capacities over the years has only increased my passion and desire to be an active participant in the continued success of Littleton Public Schools, and I look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.

What I Love About LPS
· Great teachers and staff
The teachers and staff in the LPS district truly care about the success and wellbeing of their students, and it is apparent daily. From a supportive hug in the morning, to encouragement to try something new, to cheering them on in their successes, students in this district are supported.
· Supportive Learning Environments
In LPS, the goal is to meet students at their level, and to provide a learning environment that meets their individual needs. Whether a student is right on track, needing added enrichment or needing learning support services, the teachers and staff do their best to provide what the student needs.
· Innovation and Creativity
Within the classrooms at schools in LPS, innovation and creativity are encouraged. The movement towards a more student-led learning model, the design of the new elementary schools and the upcoming Career and Technical Education and Innovation Center are all great examples.
· Strong Community Feel
From the first Kindergarten information night at our elementary school, our family felt welcome by the school and the community. We have been supported by our school community many times and have had the opportunity to provide support to other families in our community. There is a real connection from families to their schools, and it is so powerful. Connected families are involved families who work together to do great things. LPS is a shining example of this.
