Mrs. Colleen Wells

I hope you enjoy being in my classroom, and I look forward to getting to know you throughout the year. This year I am teaching US History, AP Government & Politics, and US Government & Politics.

While I am not a Colorado native, I am a proud Texan, AND I love Colorado! I have been teaching at EHS since 2014, and have been teaching since 2006.  In addition to high school, I have also taught at the middle school level. I have taught both History and English classes. History classes I have taught include: US History, AP US History, World History, Government, AP Government, Psychology, Sociology, Women's History, African American History, and Colorado History.

I enjoy getting to know our student body outside of the classroom and attending many of our extracurricular events. I am also an EHS Flight Crew sponsor, Junior Class Sponsor, Prom Coordinator, and one of the leaders for our faculty A-Team. 

In addition to teaching, I have a variety of interests and coffee and chocolate are two of my favorite treats. I love to travel, and spend much of my free time exploring Colorado's beauty in my Jeep with my wonderful husband, Paul.  He is a retired US Army soldier, and we have lived coast to coast across the United States, and in Germany. We have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren, with more to come.

This year I have a fantastic intern teacher, Dr. Chancy Anderson, who will be teaching some of my classes as well as some other classes in the Social Studies department.  Learn more about her below.

I love being here at Elizabeth High School!

I will graduate with my Ph.D. in December, 2023.
