Ms. Cassandra Piper
Mrs. Amy Starnes
Mrs. Megan Barnard
I was born in California ,but my family moved to Colorado when I was 6 weeks old. Therefore, I claim to be a Colorado girl. I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time with my family. I have a daughter 14, son 7, and son 6. They keep me busy to say the least. My greatest accomplishments are being a fantastically fun mom and fulfilling my dream of becoming a teacher. I feel so blessed to come to work every day and be near my own children , but even better be doing something I completely love
