Nora Cadwallader-Staub

I am student teaching this whole year with Mrs. Rothman through the Friends' School Teacher Preparation Program and thrilled to be here at Sanchez!  I recently moved from Vermont where I was teaching in an arts integrated elementary school in Kindergarten.  I have been a farmer in the past and love animals and the outdoors, running, biking, dancing and getting to know the Rocky Mountains here in Colorado! 

Jessica Rothman
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a BA in Japanese language and my elementary teaching certificate. I'm currently enrolled at CU for an MA in linguistically diverse education. I love teaching because every day is different and the kids make me laugh. I live with my husband and our two dogs, Bogart and Bella. I like to read, play the piano, play ultimate frisbee and do step aerobics. I love to travel!
