It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
I am thrilled to be a Kindergarten teacher here at Red Hawk Elementary School. A few years ago, my family relocated to Colorado from Pennsylvania. Previously, I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. I initially started out in the business arena, but returned to school for my elementary education certification. I can say from experience that teaching is the hardest AND most rewarding profession (along with parenthood). I enjoy the challenge of meeting every child where they are (academically/socially/emotionally) and then finding ways to help them grow as lifelong learners. I want every child to feel empowered and successful.
I enjoy exploring the area through hiking and sightseeing. In Pennsylvania, I saw lots of groundhogs, deer, and foxes. Now, I am adjusting to prairie dogs, rabbits, and the ever-sly coyotes! It has been quite an experience. The western skyline is just gorgeous. In addition to learning about Colorado, I spend lots of time with my family. My two teenagers keep me busy. I also love to read. I am happy to receive recommendations on good books...both for adults and kids. (P.S. I'll have some good books to recommend as well!)
