My name is Rhonda Margulies and I have been teaching for 8 years, two of which were at an IB school in Adams 12. I received my teaching licensure and Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction through University of Denver. I am currently working on my certification in Early Language and Literacy through Denver Public Schools and UCD. I have lived in Colorado my entire life and my family and I definitely like to take advantage of the beautiful mountains that are a short drive away. I love camping and hiking and will choose a tent over a fancy hotel any day! I have an almost-4- year old daughter and an 18-month- old son who keep me busy, but constantly entertained. Mila thinks she is a princess-gymnast, and Max thinks he is a tornado. A few of my favorites: reading, cooking for friends and family, theme parties and dressing up, family movie night, and of course, the hilarity and brilliance of first graders. I can’t wait to be a part of the Swigert community and get back to the way of planning, teaching, and learning that I think is best!
