I truly believe that each child is capable of learning to their highest potential.  My background with a degree in elementary and special education has prepared me to teach all of your children. I  have been teaching in Douglas County for eighteen years, four of those in special education and the last fourteen in third grade, 

I began my teaching career in 1984 at Riverview Jr. High School in Murray Utah. There I taught 7-9th-grade students with learning disabilities in a resource room. However, it was short-lived, as a family, we moved to California where I taught in a self-contained K-3 classroom for a few years, before switching to a 5/6 combination class and then a 6th-grade classroom.

My love of Colorado brought me back.  We have lived here for the past 28 years.  Our four daughters were raised here and attended Sand Creek Elementary.  This is why Sand Creek is very important to me, being my children's home school and my favorite place to work. Third grade happens to be my favorite grade to teach. 

My family has grown over the years.  I now have three new son-in-laws and eight grandchildren.   I love being a GIGI, riding my horse,  participating in a book club, paddle boarding, vacationing on Sanibel Island and most of all teaching your children! 

 Welcome to Third Grade!!1

My name is Mrs. Landgrave:

I am so excited that you will be in our class. We are going to have the best third grade year. 

We will learn many new and exciting things this year.  We will learn about Native Americans,

Economics, Life Cycles(hatching chicks), geography, and much more.

For mathematics, we will begin the year learning about multiplication.  I hope that you have already begun to work on memorizing those multiplication facts!  If not go ahead and get started.

Our school supply drop off is on Friday, August 6th from 4-6:30.  It is a great time to put your supplies away, introduce yourself to me, your teacher, and get ready for our first full day of school on Monday, August 9th.  

Please bring a snack and water bottle with you each day to school.  We will take a snack break during our day.

If you have any questions, you can reach me at
