TEACH IN DENVER

Think back to your days in school. Did you have any teachers that looked like you? That went through the same experiences as you? What would it have been like if you did? Be a role model for students of color in Denver.

I am a proud Denver transplant from New Jersey working with Denver Public Schools.

Begin Story

What are some of the things that you love about Denver?

The Parks. The feeling that I can touch real Earth by taking a 15 minute drive.

What neighborhoods in Denver do you like? Why?

Barnum, because it's where I live and we have a great park. I love the trees in Park Hill. I love the Golden Triangle and Downtown because there's lots to do, especially theatres and music venues of all sizes. If I were just moving here and could afford it, I would live in RiNo because it's so active.
