Mrs. Kofoed is a reading addict. She loves collecting books. She also enjoys the outdoors. She comes from a family of white water river lovers. She is the queen of pop. She is a die-hard popcorn connoisseur. She lives and breathes all things popcorn. She has an adventurous heart, and loves to experience new things, foods, and places. She likes unique things. When she was in 6th grade she had a pet skunk. She liked to walk him around the neighborhood on his little red leash and watch reactions from people.
Shailee Haskell is a country girl and love everything outdoor (fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, riding horses, camping). She has swam with a dolphin, and wished she had the means to travel. Her bucket list includes places like Mt. Fuji, Iguazu Falls, and Ireland. She loves teaching but if I had the money or the talent to make enough money doing it, she would rope and do artsy stuff with her life. And last but not least, she is a peanut butter fanatic.
Suzanne Aguero is very shy. When she was younger, people used to think she was so rude because she would walk around glaring at them and not talking. In reality, she was just super shy and I didn't wear her glasses. She spends ALL her evenings and weekends on a soccer field somewhere in Utah or even in the western United States. All of her five children play soccer. She loves music, loves to sing, and secretly sings karaoke in her spare time. She also played the violin and the piano in her younger days. She even taught herself how to play the piano. She got a guitar thinking she could teach herself......it's now collecting dust. Her husband is from Peru. Teaching runs through her blood. Her father was an English teacher and his mother was an elementary teacher. She never knew she wanted to be a teacher until she started teaching P.E. and music at this school. That's when she knew where she was supposed to be.
When Katie Lambert was younger, she wanted to be on Broadway, but she haa zero talent for it, so now she is a teacher. Sometimes she yells things while she’s watching sports so people think she understands what is happening, but she doesn’t. She has been sky-diving, bungee jumping, paragliding, and parasailing. She loves HOT weather. And finally, it is her life goal to be on Ellen or Jimmy Fallon.
Charla Andersen enjoys being outside in the warm weather. She hates the snow (unless she is going skiing, but snow really should stay in the mountains). French fries and a diet coke with lime and coconut is her favorite meal ever! (She knows that’s not really a meal, but it counts in her book.) She really loves what she does, she LOVES teaching. And one last secret…she loves to tease.
Nichol Lyman loves movies and books. Her favorite team is the Denver Broncos. You might find her eating ice cream at midnight—she loves it! She survived being chased by a lion in South Africa. And she really is a dare-devil because jumping into a shark tank is on her bucket list.
Nisha Maag is an only child. She has two children, and those children will be having a baby only one week apart. She loves dogs, and hare favorite color is yellow. She loves feeding the children here at school. She says, “Everyone is happy when it is time to eat.”
Kelsi Moore has a favorite and funny quote about reading. It is, "I'm not convinced I know how to read, I just memorized a lot of words." She is blessed with Regency/Victorian era literature, fashion from the 20's, 40's, and 50's, and music from the 60's, 80's, and 00's. During her free time you might find her writing, cooking, eating, practicing yoga, meditating, listening to a podcast or music, knitting, or reading. But most likely you'll find her binge watching Netflix and following Taylor Swift's twitter account.

Mrs. McEntire is an amazing 3rd grade teacher at East Meadows. Our teachers had the opportunity to comment on Penny's many skills. She is known for being very talented, creative, dedicated and considerate of others. She is a face in our school that is always smiling! We don't know what we would do without her! we are so lucky to have her at our school.
