Like Starbucks?
Favorite (school time) Beverage
Non-fat white chocolate mocha
Favorite Color(s)
Favorite Sport(s)/Team(s)
Colorado Buffs! #SKOBUFFS! I'm mostly into watching what my kids do, so right now that's CU track and field
Favorite Book
Grown-up author: Ann Lamott; Kids author: Kate DiCamillo and Christopher Paul Curtis. My favorite kids' books will probably always be "Tale of Desperaux" and "The Watsons Go To Birmingham" because I can reread those EVERY year with a new group of kids, do the voices up to the hilt, and hear the kids giggle, gasp, sigh, and cheer. There's nothing like bringing a good book to a kid!
Favorite Movie
Anything from Hidden Figures to Zoolander
Favorite Food
Favorite restaurants: The Post (their gluten-free fried chicken is AMAZING); Sunrose Cafe; The Roost; Aime's Love Bakery. Basically gluten-free cupcakes and donuts that are certified gluten free!
Favorite Treat
Those gluten-free breakfast sandwiches at Starbucks! White chocolate mochas or Vanilla lattes
Favorite Flower
Gerbera daisies (especially the coral ones) and those purple alstroemeria flowers
I like running around Lake McIntosh at sunset or going on waterfall hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Causes I Support
Music and arts in schools; anything kid-related
Things I Need in my Classroom
CLOROX WIPES AND STICKY NOTES. And I am perpetually low on pencils and chalk
Dislikes/Allergies/Dietary Restrictions
Gluten free FOR REAL, as in celiac disease; has to be certified gluten free. No fresh veggies, fruits, nuts, or seeds. Allergic to dry erase markers and basically anything scented :)
Anything else?
