Hello Scott Families, 

I am humbled and grateful to be lead the exceptional team of educators at Vera G. Scott Elementary School.  

I am a Colorado native and grew up in a large family in the San Luis Valley.  Early in my high school years, I determined that Colorado Springs was a great fit for me.  I was excited to move here after I finished college in Iowa.  I began my career leading outdoor education and youth programs at a youth camp near Woodland Park.  I then moved to Denver to attend Graduate School and entered public education as a Special Educator in Littleton. I next served in Jefferson County Public Schools as a Counselor and Assistant Principal in the North Denver area before returning home to Colorado Springs.  For seven years, I had the privilege of being part of the great team at Jenkins.  During this time, I truly enjoyed supporting students from Scott as they transitioned into the middle school years.  I am so happy to be able to remain a part of this community.  

If I can do anything to support you or your student, please reach out.  My goal is to partner with our families and teachers to create an exceptional elementary school experience for every member of the Wolf Pack.
