Life Before Thomas Jefferson High School

Prior to teaching at Thomas Jefferson, I was a mild/moderate special education teacher at Abraham Lincoln High School for the last five years.  In addition to teaching, I have been a small business owner for the last 15 years of Advanced Therapeutic Massage in Lakewood, CO.  My 19 year old son recently graduated from Army basic training and is currently training to become an Army Ranger!  My 14 year old son will be starting at Wheat Ridge High School this year.  I have two border collies, enjoy hiking and in addition am an avid gardner and bee keeper.
