My name is Elona Fish (aka Miss Elona) and I have been at HSC since 2009. My passion since my first class at the age of 8 is dance and I haven’t stopped since then.  I have been a dance instructor for almost 20 years for children as young as two up to adults.  I attend performances whenever I can and have volunteered at many non-profits for dance.  My BFA in Dance Studies is from Missouri State University where I also received a Business Essentials Curriculum Certificate.

I enjoy moving and playing around with the kids in the PE classes.  My goal is to play some favorites while also learning new skills and games.

When I am not at work I can usually be found hiking with my daughter, playing with one of our many pets, or cooking up new recipes.

I looking forward to spending time with the students this year and working with them in different classes.  Every year I am in awe of how much they grow and learn.  Don’t hesitate to say hi or ask me any questions!

Nancy Weaver: Writing –  Lakewood, Westminster & Evergreen

Click here to email Ms. Nancy

My name is Nancy Weaver, Miss Nancy to the students, and I teach Creative Writing I, HSC Student Newspaper/Media, Creative Writing II/Advertising, Art Books, and Young Ameritowne at HSC.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in English-Writing from the University of Colorado, along with some miscellaneous graduate level classes in various subjects. Formerly a municipal employee in the field of Risk Management.  I elected to stay at home with my daughters, Sara & Emma for several years.  When my youngest daughter, Emma started first grade, it was time for a new challenge so I took a position at Woodrow Wilson Academy as a classroom assistant in the fourth grade classrooms. Halfway through my second year at WWA the opportunity to teach Creative Writing I and II became available at HSC. Now, several years later, our class offerings have grown to offer 6 classes per day & we add new and exciting classes every year!

Firmly believing in the philosophy that “everyone is a student and everyone is a teacher”, I greatly enjoy working with the students at HSC.  Not only do I have an opportunity to share with them the vast world that is writing and all of the doors it can open to learning, imagination, self-expression, and independence, but they teach me as well. Not a week at HSC goes by that students do not surprise me with their creativity and ideas.  The HSC students continue to inspire me by being excited to learn and willing to share their work with others.

 

Jamie Williams: Kindergarten – Westminster & Lakewood

Click here to email Ms. Jamie

My name is Jamie Williams (Ms. Jamie) and I teach Kindergarten at HSC.  I graduated from Adams State College and have had the opportunity to work with many different children in various settings.  I have been at The Home School Connection since 2007.    When I am not at Home School Connection, I am having fun at home with my husband and our two beautiful daughters.

I love teaching kindergarten because it is full of discovery and excitement.  We cover so many topics in kindergarten and it is so fun to hear a kindergartener’s view on why things work the way they do.  It is exciting for me to watch the wheels spinning inside a student’s head and to see the light bulb light up once the ideas presented become understood in a student’s mind.
