My family and I moved to Denver several years ago.
- My husband took a job as a ski instructor at one of the resorts just outside of Denver.
Gary was on the olympic ski jumping team. He is known around the world and the ski job came with some awesome perks. We get to use the resort anytime we want for half price. I was still going to school when we moved to Denver, but I have since finished and received my teaching degree. During the school year, I work as a middle school math teacher. I like the job a lot and it’s fun to interact with the students. Teaching has always been a passion of mine. The school year is longest during the winter months, when it can be exceptionally cold and frigid. We have ice on the ground for several months and sometimes it snows Before Christmas. Last year we had snow on the first day of fall. The traffic in downtown Denver was a nightmare and I had trouble getting to the classroom. About an hour after I arrived, the school board decided to shut down the school and have an early dismissal. That is the first time that we have had snow so early. It often snows in the mountainous region above Denver, Colorado, but this is the first time in a long time that we had snow in the middle of September. I never thought I would be able to get used to the cold winter and snow, but it certainly helps to have a powerful furnace.
