Hi, I'm Mrs. Melissa! I've been teaching for more than fifteen years and am so happy landed at Peak. I love creating exciting culminating projects to showcase our learning. I have master's degrees in reading instruction and educational leadership. I was born and raised in Colorado. Outside of school, I love camping, plants and gardening, reading, snowboarding, travel, and spending time with my family.  I am looking forward to another challenging, meaningful and adventurous year at Peak Expeditionary School!

Literacy Topics:
*Overcoming Learning Challenges Near & Far
*Adaptations of Frogs 
*Exploring Literacy Classics (Peter Pan)
*Water Around the World




     My name is Ms. Dani and I am so happy to be teaching 3rd grade here at Peak! Providing a safe, loving, and meaningful learning environment for children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember whether it be as a volunteer, substitute, paraprofessional, or my 3+ years as a classroom educator. I feel so lucky to be at a school where I am able to provide meaningful, challenging, and adventurous experiences aligned with math and STEM instruction. 

I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my bachelors in elementary education.

I grew up here in Colorado and love enjoying all of the wonderful things this state has to offer. When I'm not in school I enjoy all things outdoors like hiking, camping, paddle boarding as well as spending time with my family and friends. I'm excited for a great school year and am looking forward to partnering with you in your child's education here at PEAK!
