Hello! My name is Abigail Farris and I am originally from Woodstock, IL, a suburb of Chicago. I just recently moved to Colorado this summer and am very excited to embrace all that Colorado has to offer!
I received my undergraduate degrees in Biology and Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and after a short stint working for the health department in my hometown I earned my master degree in Secondary Science Education from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. I spent the first three years of my teaching career at Lincoln Park High School in Chicago, IL teaching both biology and chemistry. I throughly enjoyed my career and life in Chicago, but my childhood ski trips out West left me craving a life surrounded by mountains.
Aside from teaching, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and spending time with friends, family, and my handsome golden retriever, Timber. I am very excited to start this next chapter in Colorado and could not be happier to join the Bison family!
