A few quotes you'll find in my classroom:

"Mistakes are proof that you are trying"
 
"Don't stop until you are proud"
 
"We are all learners"
 
"We are all teachers"
 
 
I have made Grand Junction my home since 2006. I grew up in Denver and graduated from Colorado State University in Fort Collins.  My teaching certificate is from Colorado Mesa University's teacher's program. This is my sixth year at Independence Academy and I love the open, friendly and innovative attitude of the staff here. We work to produce learners who have the skills they need to achieve their goals as well as the ability to think through and solve problems.
