The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
I am excited to be working with the gifted and talented students here at Lyons Elementary. I graduated from Lenoir Rhyne College in Hickory, NC and started my teaching career there. Over the next 20 years I taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in North Carolina, Georgia, and Texas. As you can see moving around has been a way of life for me and has given me the chance to work with so many interesting people in many different places. I even spent two years serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines as a teacher trainer for Filipino teachers. Along the way I found I have a passion for working with gifted and talented students and helping them see challenges and risk taking as ways to grow and learn. I moved to Lyons, CO from Austin, Texas and enjoy volunteering for many community projects as well as taking advantage of colorful Colorado. You can find me hiking and skiing with my husband Mark. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, and playing my upright bass in local jams.
