Georgia Roberts

Dear Parents,

Welcome to 5th grade!  This will be an important year of academics and social growth for your child.  My name is Georgia Roberts I am your child's fifth-grade teacher. My former teaching position was Sixth-Grade Language Arts for fourteen years (change is good)!  I have 28 years of teaching experience.  I began my teaching career in Tampa, Florida where I taught multiple grade levels.  After relocating to Denver, I continued my teaching career at the wonderful Sand Creek Elementary, where I have happily taught for the last fourteen years.  I have an Education degree from Michigan State University (Go Spartans) and a Masters Degree in Curriculum Instruction with a strong focus on reading instruction. 

I have two children that are attending the University of Colorado and in my spare time, I enjoy socializing, yoga and reading.
