I am so excited to serve as the Interim Principal at Teller for the remainder of this school year. Though I have been here only a short time, I am already getting acquainted with the wonderful Teller staff and students. Everyone has been so welcoming and supportive. It’s been a great beginning.
By way of introduction, I started my teaching career in DPS as the Gifted and Talented Teacher at Cole/Denver School of the Arts. Following that wonderful experience, I spent the next 4 years as a Teacher on Special Assignment in the DPS Gifted and Talented District Office. When finishing graduate work in school administration, I was an AP at Lincoln High and then Principal at Cory Elementary.
Since retiring, I have served as Interim Principal at several school in DPS and have loved each and every assignment as it has given me the opportunity to experience the rich diversity of Denver Public Schools. I am proud to serve on the DPS Team!
On a personal note, I love reading, playing bridge, golfing and traveling the world. I am looking forward to traveling to China during the month of June. Last but not least, I enjoy my 4 wonderful grandkids who live in Denver and are all DPS students.
Thanks again for your warm welcome. I look forward to meeting you during these next two months.

Dear Teller Families,
As part of the library projects, this time we have partnered with the Children’s Hospital to help kids with cancer by collecting different items to help alleviate chemo side effects and make their stay at the hospital more pleasant.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students the magic of giving and caring by involving them in the collection process.
We’ll be collecting new travel-sized items by classroom in order to help as much as possible. We will combine these items into Chemo Care Kits for Kids.
The library will be accepting donations starting Monday, March 20th thru April 21st (except for during spring break) from 8 am to 3 pm. You may leave your donations in the library or in the office if students are testing in the library.
Grade level donation assignments:
K.- Lip balm
ECE.- Travel size hand sanitizer
1st.- Travel size body lotion
2nd.- I-tunes gift cards
3rd.- Note pads / pens
4th.- Cozy socks
