Staffing Changes

Hello Alpine Community,

We are looking forward to an amazing 2018-2019 school year. We are happy to announce the addition of a few new teachers and staff to Alpine Elementary. As with any school, staffing changes can sometimes occur over the summer, and we wanted to keep you informed. Because of these staffing changes, in a few cases, students will have a different teacher than they were assigned at the end of last school year. If your child will have a different teacher, you will receive a notification after office staff return to work August 1.  

Ms. Jessica Waggoner will join Ms. Lind and Mr. Radtke on our fourth grade team. Ms. Waggoner graduated from CU Boulder and student taught at STEM Launch K-8 in Adams 12. She most recently finished teaching English to elementary students in Thailand. She is a wonderful new addition to Alpine. We will miss Mr. Neiswander and wish him the best as he transfers to Central Elementary. 

Our third grade team currently has a new opening. We are looking forward to finding a great fit for Alpine who will round out the team of Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Drangeid. 

We recently hired two highly-qualified paraprofessionals to join our staff;  Lexi Alvarez will join our special education team. Lexi comes to us from Mapleton Public Schools where she was also a SPED paraprofessional. Peggy Samide will join Ms. Kathy's class as an additional PK para. Peggy is an experienced teacher who wants to get back into the classroom with children. 

As always, we will keep you informed of staffing changes. Office staff will return August 1. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer.
