Even as a young child, Denise realized the value of teaching and learning as she would “play school” with her sister. She attended the University of Northern Colorado receiving a B.S. and Master’s Degree in Early Education. She taught kindergarten for many years, and her love of teaching led to additional involvement in summer programs. She has also operated and owned a daycare/preschool.
Denise is also a talented artist and is involved in many art leagues, shows, and competitions. She sells her art along with continuing her deep-rooted passion of giving every child the opportunity to learn.
