Family and Consumer Science
I grew up on a dairy farm in Calhan, Colorado and received my bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Science from Colorado State University. Classes I teach include Health, Basic Foods, International Cuisine, Jr. High Home Economics, and Jr. High Enrichment. I am a Junior class sponsor this year which means I spend my weekends shopping at Sam’s Club and planning “food specials” for the concession stand. I also sponsor Student Council which includes organizing Homecoming Week activities and the Secret Santa Shop.
In my free time I enjoy reading, traveling adventures, working in my garden, preparing foreign cuisine dishes, and creating textile projects. I spent 3 weeks in China and Japan this summer with my husband and the Amundsons.
My husband Brian is the Industrial Arts teacher at DeerTrail and our daughter Teri has her own company – Storm Solutions,LLC.
We have a 5 year old granddaughter that we love spending time with; she keeps us busy with hiking, swimming, and excursions to the mountains.
