 Who is Ms. Bound?

I have lived in Colorado all of my life, and I was actually born in the same hospital where I had my son. He currently lives and works in Denver, and my daughter is currently working on her Masters in Social Work. I enjoy doing things outdoors like walking or hiking, especially with family. We've been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places that have really opened my eyes to this beautiful world we live in! 
I started teaching in Brush, Colorado, and then moved to Colorado Springs before coming to Sand Creek shortly after it opened. Here, I taught third grade for eight years prior to moving to fifth grade where I've been ever since. I love it here! I approach teaching by honoring kids where they are and recognizing all the great things that make them an individual. My favorite part is really getting to know them and creating a safe, fun, enriching environment. When kids feel safe and valued, they perform much better and are willing to take risks.
