Hi, I’m Mrs. Ivanich and I am going to be your child’s 1st grade Teacher. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to start my fourth year here at Singing Hills Elementary. I am looking forward to working with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us!
I thought you might like to know a little about me. I am married to my wonderful husband, Bill. We have a daughter (Paige) who is in 7th grade and a son (William) who is in 5th grade. As a family, we enjoy are reading, hiking, biking and traveling.
I was born and raised in Montana. While living in Montana I was attending college to get my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2000. In 2003, I graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver with a degree in Behavioral Science, at that time I decided to work in the Mental Health field. After our son was born, I opened and operated an in-home daycare for 5 years. In 2014, I realized how much I loved working with children and watching them grow and learn. I went back to work full-time for Douglas County School District where I worked in a Special Education Classroom for two years.
I take teaching very seriously, and it comes from the heart. While your child is in my care, I will do my best to teach them as much as possible, ensure that they believe in themselves, push them to new heights, and build a rapport that extends these classroom walls. I believe that communication is an important piece in education. Please feel free to email me or call if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to a great year together!
