I am a proud graduate of the University of Oklahoma where I received my Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Language Arts Education. I then went on to Emporia State University to earn my Masters in Pre-K-12 Educational Administration. I am a proud Native American woman (Klamath tribe!) and am married to my awesome wife who also works for Denver Public Schools as a Kindergarten teacher at Montclair. I am a mother to my four year old, Blue Parrish. I am an activist for indigenous and environmental issues and an avid decolonizer of public education. I have been in education for 14 years and have started my third year as the proud principal of High Tech Early College.
