RACHEL MOEN-2nd Grade Teacher
I was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Littleton, Colorado. I went to Fort Lewis College where I graduated in 2005 with BA in Art and a minor in Women’s Studies. After trips to Mexico and Guatemala, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher working with Bilingual students. After two years of working as a 3rdgrade teacher with bilingual students, I earned my masters in Linguistic Diversity from University of Colorado Denver. I enjoy reading, making art, gardening, biking, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
My name is Mariza Elizondo-Rios. I was born in Torreon Coahuila Mexico. I have been working as an ELA-S Teacher for the last 18 years. I have 3 kids Dewey, Siam and Tess. I have a miniature schnauzer named Mocha. I enjoy poetry, great movies and gardening. I love music and different languages. I love different cultures and bringing them into my classroom. I love the concept of teaching children in a holistic way.
