I have a son, Collin, who is a senior at CU Boulder. My daughter, Ellie, is a junior at DU. Our family loves to camp and be outdoors. In my free time I enjoy gardening, reading, paper crafting and spending time with my friends and family.

I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado where I also played soccer. I love spending time with my friends and family. My other hobbies include unnecessary shopping trips to Target and spending time outdoors. A fun fact about me is I also was once a SME Cub. Once a cub, always a cub!

[email protected] I am so happy to be embarking on my fifth year as a learning specialist in Douglas County, and my second year at SME. Prior to moving to Douglas County, I taught kindergarten, third grade, and special education in Florida and Texas. I currently live in Parker with my husband, our two children, and our two dogs. In our spare time, we love finding new brunch restaurants and hiking.

Mild/Mod Teacher
[email protected] I split my time as a Learning Specialist at SME and an English Language Development Teacher at Northridge Elementary. My goal as a teacher is to instill a sense of wonder and excitement about learning while simultaneously equipping students with the skills and knowledge that are foundational to their future learning experiences.
When I am not at school, I love to spend time with my three teenage sons, visit friends and family in my home state of Idaho and travel to anywhere with a beach

[email protected] Hello! I'm Ms. Kock, or "Ms. K" to most of my students. I am a school psychologist in my seventh year of practice and second year at SME. My role involves all aspects of psychological-educational evaluation, counseling, and consultation especially for our students with special education needs; however, I am available to support any student within an individual or small group setting! I'm passionate about my job, but I also enjoy hiking, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.
