    Media Specialist

    This is my fourteenth year teaching for Pueblo School District 60. I have taught first and second grade before transitioning into the Media Center several years ago.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English as a Second Language in 2005 and my Master of Arts degree in Instructional Technology from Grand Canyon University in 2009.  I also became a certified School Librarian in 2015 and obtained my Principal license from Western State University in 2018. 

    I am so excited to work with all of our students this year, and am especially excited to share my love of reading great literature and using technology with all of our Bradford scholars!
  • Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum

    Students in first through fifth grades will learn about internet safety and digital literacy with the Common Sense Media curriculum. In this exciting age of technology, it's vital to teach our children how to stay safe online, choose appropriate websites, movies, games, and more whether they are working on the internet here at school or at home.
