The Business Education program is designed to develop knowledge and skills related to the business field.  Areas of emphasis include technology skills, decision-making and critical-thinking, consumer proficiency, interpersonal relationships, personal work habits and attitudes, and preparation for employment.  Students will apply basic skills in reading, writing, oral communication, and computation.

With 33 years of teaching experience at the junior high and high school levels, I received my BA from the University of Northern Colorado and my Masters at Colorado State University. Retiring in 2010, I returned to teach on a part-time basis. The classes I teach are Business Math - a year long class and the following semester classes: Business Leadership, Digital Media, Computer Applications, and Word Processing. I also teach Computer Applications for Morgan Community College.

As the adviser for FBLA, Future Business Leaders of America, I encourage students to participate in activities that will enhance their secondary education through their exposrue to the business field.  This includes developing confidence in their business leadership, creating an interest and understanding of the American business enterprise, encouraging money management, promoting patriotism, and assisting with career options.

In addition to teaching, I am a leader for the Bridle Path club which specializes in the horse project. Along with this responsibility I serve on the Arapahoe County Horse Council and help organize and run the fair's horse show and gymkhana.

My husband, Terry Amundson, also teaches and coaches at Byers High School. We are proud to be long time residents of Byers and  that our 2 daughters completed their education at Byers.  In our spare time we enjoy time with our family and grandchildren.

In my spare time I enjoy working my Appaloosa horses where I pursue showing in the English and Western disciplines and also jumping, specifically cross country.
